Student COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Students

Update: June 30, 2022

Last fall, Governor Pritzker issued Executive Order 2021-22 which includes a requirement that “higher education personnel and higher education students who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must be tested for COVID-19 weekly, at a minimum.”

  • The order has been reissued and extended each month, most recently through July 24, 2022.
  • At this time, we have no indication that the order will be allowed to expire at the end of the month, so we continue to collect student COVID-19 vaccination records for the purpose of exempting students currently enrolled in any in-person classes from the state-mandated testing requirement that remains in place.
  • Students admitted for Fall 2022 DO NOT need to provide of vaccination to attend Summer Orientation.
  • If you have already provided proof of vaccination, you do not need to submit your information again after receiving a booster shot.
