University Policy

For the Fall 2021 semester, it will be required that all students, faculty and staff who are able to do so will be fully vaccinated (defined as 14 days after the final dose) with a university-accepted vaccine. Those who are unvaccinated will continue to be required to participate in the on-campus COVID-19 testing program. The university is following Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) guidance and accepting vaccines currently authorized for emergency use by either the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization. If you are not able to access one of the university-accepted vaccines, you will be able to receive an accepted vaccine upon your arrival to campus. Individuals should submit their Vaccination Record Card in the MyMcKinley Portal and have it verified. Until it is verified, you must participate in the COVID-19 on-campus testing program.
