Vaccine Compliance

COVID-19 Vaccination/Booster Requirement

The deadline to upload proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations including booster or exemption form to your Secure Patient Portal is August 15th, 2022. Students who are not compliant with the vaccination/booster requirement will have a hold placed on their account. A hold on your account would prevent you from ordering transcripts, registering for or withdrawing from classes, or viewing your grades once they’re uploaded.

More information regarding UP's COVID-19 vaccination policy can be found on the Pilots Prevent website.

How can I get compliant with the University's COVID-19 vaccination requirement?

You can get compliant for the COVID-19 vaccination requirement by (1.) getting your booster and uploading proof (i.e. a photo of your vaccination card, a copy of your vaccination record, or other official medical documentation which shows your name, date of birth, date of vaccination, vaccine type, and lot number) or (2.) submitting a completed exemption form signed by you and your healthcare provider.

I had an approved exemption for the COVID-19 vaccination requirement last year. What should I do this year?

Students who submitted an approved vaccination exemption form in the 2021-2022 school year that wish to renew their exemption for the 2022-2023 school year should complete and submit a COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption Renewal Form and upload that form to their Secure Patient Portal before the August 15th deadline.

Students who submitted an approved vaccination exemption form in the 2021-2022 school year that have since been fully vaccinated should follow the instructions to upload proof of their COVID-19 vaccinations/booster to their Secure Patient Portal before the August 15th deadline.

How can I get a COVID-19 vaccination hold removed from my student account?

The only way to have a COVID-19 vaccination hold removed from your account is to get compliant with the University's COVID-19 vaccination policy. Please upload proof of your vaccinations/booster or a completed exemption form to your Secure Patient Portal as quickly as possible to avoid any delays or other issues prior to registration/graduation. 

Please note, it takes time for a hold to be removed, and it cannot happen immediately. Review of students' documentation and hold removals only take place during our business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm. Holds are not removed on the weekends. Holds will be removed in the order the documentation is received by the HCC.
