Immunization Requirements

The University of Minnesota requires all enrolled students to meet vaccination requirements. As of August 23rd, 2021, this now includes the COVID-19 vaccine.  All students enrolled online or in person must complete the COVID-19 vaccination form by October 8, 2021, which asks students to report their vaccination information or to request a medical or religious exemption. All NEW students must also complete the non-COVID-19 vaccination requirements by the 6th week of the semester.
