Immunization Exemptions

You may request an exemption from the vaccination requirement for specific medical or religious reasons. Students wishing to request an exemption must submit the required request forms to the Student Health Portal. You must submit your exemption request at least 30 business days before your first planned campus access. We will not expedite late submissions.

All exemption requests are reviewed by an expert panel and all students submitting a request will receive a response, in writing, within 2 weeks of their submission. Requests without sufficient documentation will be denied. All requests are considered and reviewed, but approval is not guaranteed.  Decisions are final and are not subject to appeal. 

Religious exemptions must be recertified annually, using the Recertification form(s) below.
