For Students: Record your Vaccination
A message from Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students Price published August 11, 2021
Good morning, Chapman students – The commencement ceremonies over the past two weekends have reminded us of the energy and excitement that typically defines our campuses, and it is with comparable excitement that we look forward to resuming in-person instruction this coming fall semester. That said, the ongoing presence of COVID-19 requires that we still employ extra health and safety measures to minimize the risk of exposure and mitigate the impact of outbreaks. As I did last year, I will be sending you a complete list of expectations for your return to campus this fall. Please be on the lookout for this important message, which will be arriving in the next few days. In advance of this message, however, I do want to highlight a couple of items that need your immediate attention:
- All Chapman students, faculty, and staff will be required to participate in COVID-19 testing twice per week effective August 16; however, those who have submitted proof of vaccination are exempt from this testing requirement. If you are vaccinated but have not yet provided your vaccination information, I encourage you to do so as soon as possible by going to our vaccination registration page. Having this information confirmed before you arrive will help us confirm that you are exempt from the testing requirement. (If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, you will be exempt from testing for 90 days; a copy of your test results should be reported to the Student Health Center.)
- As we have done for the past year, your eligibility to access campus is confirmed through a simple COVID-19 health screening which you will receive daily via your Chapman email. Please note that this daily health screening process for the fall semester will begin on August 23. Beginning this date, to be permitted to access campus you will either need to be tested or have submitted proof of vaccination.
I can assure you that giving appropriate attention to these items now will make your transition to fall classes as smooth as possible.
