Registration Holds for Vaccination Non-compliance Begin Oct 20

As announced on September 2, ALL students, faculty, and staff MUST have received their second dose of a two dose COVID-19 vaccine series or a single dose COVID-19 vaccine by Nov. 1, 2021. Students who haven’t submitted evidence of vaccination or received a medical or religious exemption will be ineligible to register for spring or January Interim courses.

To date, we do not have confirmation of your vaccination or a religious/medical exemption approval. On October 20, a registration hold will be placed on your account rendering you ineligible to register for January Interim or Spring 2022 courses. The hold will be removed when you have provided your vaccination information or receive exemption approval. The hold removal process may take up to 10 days.

If you have been vaccinated, but have not yet submitted your vaccination status, please do so through on of these processes:

Information on medical or religious exemptions can be found here. Those with medical or religious exemptions, per Illinois governor's executive order issued Aug. 26, 2021, must continue to be a part of the COVID-19 testing protocols for Spring 2022. These protocols include required weekly COVID-19 testing. To comply with weekly testing you may be required to test at an off-campus location or you may be charged a campus fee for testing. Details on Spring 2022 testing will be released as we near the start of the next semester.

Medical exemptions will be reviewed on the basis of certain recognized contraindications as identified by the CDC. Religious exemptions will be reviewed following the relevant legal standards, including the Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act (745 ILCS 70/1).

As a reminder, beginning in January 2022, all Bradley students must be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption. There is no option to test instead of being vaccinated.

Students enrolled in our fully online or non-residential programs are exempt from the vaccination requirement. However, please note, individual programs may require you to undergo vaccination to meet their requirements. If your program requires you to be on campus at any time, the vaccine mandate applies to you a minimum of three days prior to your arrival.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION!

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
