Are students whose courses are 100 percent online required to get vaccinated against COVID-19?

July 6, 2021

COVID-19 Vaccination is REQUIRED (not just recommended) for all on-campus students.

COVID-19 Vaccination is RECOMMENDED (not required) for all off-campus students.

If your classes are exclusively online and you are not required to be on campus for any in-person student-related activities, you are not required by UMB’s COVID-19 Vaccination Protocol to be vaccinated. 

Students engaged in clinical or field site activities should note that external sites may have stricter vaccine rules than UMB. Being unvaccinated may impact the ability of a student to participate in activities at those external sites. Failure to complete the clinical or experiential portion of a student’s education requirements will impact their ability to graduate.
