Immunization Requirements

COVID-19 Immunization Update

Xavier is requiring all students to disclose their COVID-19 vaccination status through the Med+Proctor system by Monday, Aug. 16, 2021. Vaccinated students will upload their CDC COVID-19 vaccination card. Unvaccinated students will upload a completed COVID-19 disclosure form through Med+Proctor indicating that they have chosen not to be vaccinated at this time and that they understand the implications of remaining unvaccinated. Students who are not able to get vaccinated should ask for support services.

Following CDC guidance, Xavier expects that fully vaccinated students will be able to freely enjoy the benefits of the traditional Xavier experience.

Fully vaccinated students:

  • Will not be expected to wear masks on Xavier's campus.
  • Will be able to engage in academic, co-curricular, and social opportunities without distancing. 
  • Will not be required to engage in quarantine if exposed to a COVID-positive individual, if asymptomatic. 

Unvaccinated students:

  • May be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine if University policy changes once full FDA approval is given for the vaccines.
  • May be required to participate in community health protective practices such as mandatory surveillance testing. 
  • Should continue to follow CDC guidance, including wearing masks indoors and maintaining physical distance when possible. 
  • Will be required to isolate for 10 days upon receiving a positive COVID-19 test. 
  • Will be required to quarantine for up to10 days if exposed to a COVID-positive individual. 
  • May have limited access to remote instruction during isolation or quarantine due to the fully in-person academic experience.
  • May not be eligible for certain University programs including but not limited to clinical and other field placements. 

Special notes:

  • Nursing students should read a message from Dr. Judith Lewis, Interim Dean of the College of Nursing, regarding Castlebranch requirements for clinical/lab courses. 
  • Mandatory reporting of COVID-19 vaccination status does not apply to students enrolled in fully-online graduate programs. 

Xavier University has additional vaccine requirements for all First Year, new Transfer, and International Students.
