Religious Exemption: If a student may not receive vaccinations for religious reasons, the student must upload a completed and signed Request for Religious Exemption Form along with a letter signed by the student explaining how their religion prevents them from receiving the vaccinations, along with any supporting scripture.
Medical Exemption: If a student may not receive a vaccination for medical reasons, the student must upload a completed and signed Request for Medical Exemption Form. Student Health Services staff may request additional medical information from the student’s provider enabling them to understand the necessity of an exemption. In addition, any pregnant student can be temporarily exempted from the requirement if medically necessary.
All Exemption Request Forms can be downloaded in the SHS Portal under Downloadable Forms. Once the form is complete, it can be uploaded in the downloadable form section.
Please note: Students who are exempt from receiving measles, mumps, rubella, COVID-19, and/or meningitis ACWY vaccinations may be excluded from classes and campus (dorms, university buildings, etc.) in the event of an outbreak. Any expenses incurred by a student as a result of exclusion from classes, campus facilities, and/or university housing are the sole responsibility of the student.
