COVID-19 vaccine requirement
Is a COVID-19 vaccine required at Indiana University?
Yes. Given our desire to return to a more typical fall, a COVID-19 vaccine or approved exemption is required beginning with the fall 2021 semester. Vaccination is required at all IU campuses, including IUPUI, all regional campuses, IUPUC and IU Fort Wayne. This requirement applies to all students, faculty and staff at all IU campuses.
COVID-19 vaccine requirement
I'm arriving from an international location and don't have access to the vaccine in my current country. Will I still be able to come to IU?
We understand that students, scholars, faculty and staff arriving from an international location may not have access to a COVID-19 vaccine in their current location and may not be able to be fully vaccinated before arriving on campus this August.
Individuals in this situation shouldlet us know that they cannot meet the August 15 deadlineand should plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible upon their arrival in the U.S.
Until you are fully vaccinated, you will participate in regular COVID Check testing. You can continue to participate in orientation, classes and other activitiesas they work toward becoming fully vaccinated.
