Campus COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
Caldwell University’s plan for the fall semester is to welcome everyone back for on-campus instruction, full capacity in our residence halls, on-campus student activities, and full athletic schedules.
In order to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 and outbreaks among the campus community and to promote the public health of the campus consistent with recently released guidance from the CDC for institutions of higher education, we are announcing that all students planning to attend Caldwell University for the Fall semester must receive COVID-19 immunization.
Students who still have not uploaded a vaccine record showing at least their first shot or received an approved exemption by the end of the add/drop period on September 8th, will be dropped from their Fall 2021 classes. Exemptions will be allowed only for religious or medical reasons, or for students enrolled in fully online programs.
Students must upload documentation of their completed FDA or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccination series to the Health Services Portal as soon as possible. FAQs are available online. Questions about the policy or your personal vaccine schedule can be sent to Student Health Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All individuals age 12 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Many locations are now offering walk-in vaccinations without appointments. To locate a vaccine facility near you, you may use either the New Jersey Vaccination Finder or the National Vaccination Finder.
Caldwell University has also implemented a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for all employees.
We strongly urge each of you to get vaccinated as soon as possible, as it will protect you, your loved ones, and our campus community. It will allow us to have the rich, engaging, on-campus learning experience that defines Caldwell University.
