Immunization Submission Deadline Correction

An orientation pamphlet was recently mailed to incoming students. We discovered an error in the information about the deadline to submit immunization documentation.

The correct submission deadline information, for students entering in the 2021 fall semester for both standard vaccination requirements and COVID-19 vaccination documentation is:

  • Mandatory Standard Immunizations Submission Deadline: Thursday, July 15.
  • Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccine Immunization Submission Deadline: Sunday, August 1.
