U-M requires COVID-19 vaccinations for all students, faculty, and staff by August 30th.

All students, faculty, and staff on all three campuses of the University of Michigan are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and must submit their vaccination information before the start of the fall term.

The vaccine requirement also applies to those working or learning remotely.

The university will require all faculty, staff and students to do one of the following:

  • Submit proof of vaccination (full or partial) no later than Aug. 30.
  • Apply for a medical or religious exemption. Those individuals who request and are approved for a medical or religious exemption will be required to complete mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing and must continue to mask indoors while on campus.

Advisers are available to students, faculty and staff who have questions about the vaccine, its safety or the importance of being vaccinated.

Vaccines are free and available at most retail pharmacies and health care providers, and appointments remain available through Michigan Medicine, as well as the University Health Service.

U-M also will require anyone in a campus building or on campus transit to wear a face covering, regardless of vaccination status.
