Current Fall students who are taking in-person classes or are coming to campus will need to be vaccinated. Fall online students, not on campus, do not need to show a vaccination status. Students on campus who do not provide the information will need to be tested weekly and have a negative COVID test.

Students will not be able to register for Winter or Spring classes without a vaccination. More information is available at
