To assist the university community in completing health self-assessments, Rutgers developed the My Campus Pass symptom checker, a self-screening application that must be used by employees and students each day when traveling to campus or entering a Rutgers building. By answering several simple questions, you can conduct your assessment to determine whether you are cleared for entry. The app may also be used to screen yourself for symptoms of COVID-19 even if you are not on campus.

To access My Campus Pass, log into my.rutgers.edu. Once you log in, the My Campus Pass window will be visible. Click on the “Get My Campus Pass” button, which will take you to the symptom survey for completion. You will also be asked to include any Rutgers building you plan to enter that day. Once you submit your survey, you will receive an immediate notification as to whether you’ve been cleared for entry.

For My Campus Pass Mobile Access use this step-by-step guide to download the Rutgers mobile app and access My Campus Pass through it.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, such as severe shortness of breath or high fever, call 911.

The self-screening application is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always consult a medical professional for serious symptoms or emergencies.

If you reply YES to any of the questions below, STAY HOME and:

  • Contact your supervisor or instructor
  • Contact a healthcare provider or Student Health (for students) for guidance and to advise if testing is warranted, or if you have any further questions

If you start feeling sick during your shift or while on campus, you should leave immediately and follow the steps above.

It must be understood that these symptoms could be caused by allergies, the common cold, a pre-existing condition, and perhaps COVID-19. If a student, employee, or visitor is ill and/or displaying signs of COVID-19, and the signs are a new onset and not attributable to a known existing condition (e.g. allergies) or are different from the usual presentation (e.g. “I have allergies but this cough feels different”), they should leave immediately and follow the steps above.
