COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
Vaccination Requirements for Summer 2023 and Fall 2023
All students, faculty, and staff who are new to campus for the summer 2023 and fall 2023 semesters are required to be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccine by the beginning of the summer or fall semester, and must provide proof of their vaccine status no later than June 1, 2023 or August 1, 2023 respectively. These requirements are also applicable to the MFA Comics program. These requirements are consistent with the requirements in place for the 2022-2023 academic year.
A person is considered "up-to-date" when they have received all recommended doses in their primary vaccine series, and one booster (when eligible).
In addition to the three U.S. approved vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson), vaccines approved by international governments will be accepted. If you are coming from outside the U.S. you are strongly encouraged to get a vaccine approved for use in the U.S., if possible. For travel into the U.S., a WHO-approved vaccine is required. Confirm with your medical provider if you have questions. The deadline to be up-to-date on vaccines against COVID-19 for those new to campus for the summer semester is June 1, 2023 and for the fall 2023 semester is August 1, 2023. Please update your vaccination status in Workday as soon as possible. You may be required to show proof of vaccination when you arrive on campus for classes or housing move-in.
If you are unable to receive a vaccination in your current location, need a temporary extension, or would like more information about applying for a permanent exemption due to a disability, medical, or religious reason, please email email@example.com (students) or firstname.lastname@example.org (faculty/staff).
California and the Bay Area have excellent vaccination resources and availability. If you are granted a temporary extension or a permanent exemption, you will be required to provide a negative PCR test once per week until you are up-to-date on your vaccines against COVID-19.
