Students may be exempt from a COVID-19 vaccination on the basis of a medical or religious exemption if they meet very specific criteria. 

Students granted a medical or religious exemption will be subject to certain restrictions and COVID-19 screening and testing responsibilities detailed in this policy. You are responsible to uphold the restrictions and testing requirements.

Decisions on exemptions will be made in a few business days, depending on volume. Students will be notified via email from Student Health Service staff. 


Medical Exemptions:  Forms
Students may be exempt from this vaccine requirement if a duly licensed health care provider certifies in writing that the COVID-19 Vaccination may be detrimental to the student’s health. The campus shall provide reasonable accommodations to those students whose medical condition(s) contraindicates COVID-19 vaccination as long as the failure to be vaccinated does not prevent the student from otherwise fulfilling the programmatic or curricular requirements of their academic program. 

  • Any such requests will be reviewed and granted on a case-by-case basis by the campus.
  • All students granted a medical exemption will be required to be tested weekly for COVID-19 and wear face coverings while indoors and while outdoors and unable to social distance.

Requests for medical exemptions must contain:

  • The certification of a licensed healthcare provider,
  • Sufficient information for Student Health Service staff to understand the medical basis for the exemption,
  • The necessary length of the requested exemption,
  • Contact information for the healthcare provider.

Religious Exemptions: Forms
Students who hold genuine and sincere religious beliefs which are contrary to COVID-19 vaccination may be exempt after submitting a written statement to that effect. 


Statement MUST INCLUDE:

  • Such statement should explain how receiving the COVID-19 vaccination conflicts with the student’s sincere religious belief or practice and how not receiving the COVID-19 vaccination will not otherwise prevent the student’s completion of their programmatic or curricular requirements of the academic program. 

DO NOT INCLUDE:

  • General philosophical or moral objections to such vaccine, they will not be granted.
  • Students granted a religious exemption will be required to be tested weekly for COVID-19 and wear face coverings while indoors and while outdoors and unable to social distance.
