COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement:

In order to ensure that the University is able to offer a safe, face-to-face educational and living experience to all of our student body next semester, the administration has decided to establish a  requirement that all Marymount students, faculty, and staff receive the COVID-19 vaccine for the Fall 2021 semester. Medical and religious exemptions will be considered and granted for those who qualify.

Having our entire community vaccinated against this virus is the best way for Marymount to move forward and minimize any potential disruptions to in-person return to classes.


  1. Submit a photo of your vaccination card at by September 30, 2021.
  2. If you are in the US, be proactive and schedule your vaccination in the different available places.
  3. If you are abroad and are not able to get a vaccine, Marymount will hold a vaccination clinic on August 27th and for the second dose on September 17th. The health center will be administering the Pfizer vaccine. Remember you have until September 30 to submit your vaccination record.
  4. If you received all doses of any of the WHO-approved vaccines, you do not need to get vaccinated in the US again.
  5. If you only received one dose of any WHO-approved you will need to get a full (2 dose) vaccination again. Be mindful to wait at least 28 days after receiving the initial vaccine before you schedule your vaccine in the US
  6. If you are in need of an exemption from the vaccine, please print and fill out this form, then return it to Student Health Services (SHS) by email at or in person.
  7. If your exemption is approved and/or you do not plan to get the vaccine, after September 30, 2021, you will need to get a COVID-19 test and share negative results weekly throughout the semester to SHS. Students who do not comply with this requirement will be referred to Student Conduct.
