Vaccination Requirement for Students in Certain Academic Programs

Students who participate in certain academic programs are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they request and receive an accommodation from vaccination based on medical necessity or sincerely-held religious belief. Students who receive an accommodation from vaccination will be required to undergo regular COVID-19 testing.

Students who participate in programs that require vaccination will be notified by email of this requirement, but examples of such programs include: 

  • Marching Band
  • Theatre
  • Voice
  • Forensics
  • Moot Court
  • Model UN

Students enrolled in these programs are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 because certain aspects of the program involve activity that poses a higher risk of transmitting COVID-19, such as close proximity, travel, and/or maskless activity.

Students who do not comply with these policies may be barred from participating in the program (and, if applicable, removed from the course).
