COVID-19 Vaccine Policy
The Beloit College community is highly vaccinated against COVID-19. This commitment to health and safety on campus has served us well throughout the pandemic. Disease can spread quickly at a small residential college and the college has an interest in protecting individuals and the campus community from the devastating consequences that can result when a student contracts one of these illnesses.
We require all students to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.
Proof of full vaccination and appropriate booster is required for students by the date of return to campus for the academic year.
- This documentation must include the maker of the vaccine and dates of vaccination. This documentation must be submitted to the Health and Wellness Center as part of the required student health forms.
- This requirement applies equally to those who have already had COVID-19 or have the presence of antibodies.
- Any vaccine authorized for use is acceptable, including vaccines obtained outside the United States.
- Testing will continue for those who display symptoms of COVID-19 infection and isolation will continue to be required for students who test positive for COVID-19.
Students may request an exemption from the vaccination requirement for medical reasons, religious beliefs, or strongly held philosophical objections. Students seeking an exemption should contact the Health and Wellness Center.
