COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Student COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement & Policy

Seattle University requires all students, faculty and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an authorized vaccine unless the individual has an approved authorized exemption.

The purpose of the vaccine is to help protect the health and safety of the Seattle University community and general public by preventing the transmission of COVID-19 through effective and safe authorized vaccines and to allow the University to engage in in-person instruction, lectures, research, operations, co-curricular activities and other activities by being a “fully vaccinated campus” under Governor Inslee’s Proclamation for Institutions of Higher Education (20-12.3).
