COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Student COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement as of 7/1/2023

Student COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement & Policy prior to 7/1/2023

Seattle University requires all students, faculty and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an FDA authorized or WHO emergency use listing vaccine unless the individual has an approved authorized exemption (medical and religious accepted).

The purpose of the vaccine requirement 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).
