COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

Fall 2022 Information

  • New, traditional undergraduate students must submit proof of vaccination. All traditional undergraduate students must be up to date on their COVID vaccinations. “Up to date” is the CDC designation that encompasses the initial series plus recommended booster(s). Students must be registered for classes before they can submit COVID vaccination or exemption documentation. If you have recently registered, it may take up to 3 days from date of registration before you can submit documentation.
  • Students in graduate programs or the Bachelor's Degree for Professionals program are NOT required to submit proof of vaccination; however, we strongly encourage all students to remain up to date on COVID vaccinations for their own well-being as well as the health and safety of our community.
  • Faculty and Staff: As of August 1, 2022, up to date COVID vaccination as defined by the CDC will be strongly recommended for faculty and staff, but not required.


Instructions for Traditional Undergraduate Students:

If you have received only part of your vaccine series, please upload proof of all the vaccine doses you have received to date. You may be eligible for a temporary exemption until your next dose is due.

To submit your proof of vaccination:
  1. Go to the Health Services Health Forms webpage
  2. Click on the purple Student Health Portal button to sign in with your university username and password. 
  3. Once in the Student Health Portal, look in the upper left and click on “My Forms.”
  4. Click on the Immunization History form and complete it.
  5. Upload a legible scan or photo of your immunization card on that form or by clicking “Document Upload.”
  6. You will receive a secure message in your Student Health Portal after your record is reviewed by Health Services.
