In support of the university’s commitment to health and safety, CU Boulder will require faculty, staff and students to receive the COVID-19 vaccine before the start of the fall 2021 semester. This is in alignment with the decision to institute this requirement for the CU System and will enable the campus to more fully return to a traditional campus experience for the fall 2021 semester.

CU Boulder will have a vaccine verification process to determine that the requirement has been met for all CU affiliates. Students, staff and faculty should not inquire about an individual’s vaccine status, which is considered protected health information.

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

There are two ways to complete the vaccine requirement:

  • Proof of vaccination
  • Vaccine exemption

How to complete the requirement

Deadline

The deadline for all CU Boulder students, staff and faculty to complete the vaccine requirement process is Sept. 15, 2021.

Only vaccines that are approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) will meet the CU vaccine requirements.
