If you have not begun the COVID-19 vaccination process, please schedule an appointment to receive an RIT approved vaccine immediately as the length of time between shots will vary for two-dose vaccine series.
Vaccination site resources are available to help you locate COVID-19 vaccine options in your area.
If you have received
at least one dose
of a COVID-19 vaccine, please complete the COVID-19 Vaccine form on the RIT Wellness Portal immediately
to notify RIT of your progress.
You will need to upload
a photo or scanned copy of your vaccination card or receipt with
date of birth,
name of vaccine,
and the date(s) of your shots.
Please remember to complete the COVID-19 Vaccine form again
after you receive your second shot of a two-dose vaccine.
Those individuals who are unable to receive the vaccine for specific medical, religious, or philosophical reasons can follow the exemption process through the Student Health Center.
Students who are not fully vaccinated at the time of their arrival are expected to have a COVID-19 test
prior to or upon arrival
on the RIT campus
and will be required to participate in weekly testing starting the first week of classes. Community members who are not fully vaccinated will also be required to wear a face mask
(minimum of two-ply cloth)
while indoors in the presence of others, indoors moving through space occupied by others,
or outdoors in crowded outdoor settings.
Full vaccination occurs 14 days after the final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you are not going to be vaccinated and will not be on campus at any time during the 2021-22 academic year,
you may be eligible to complete an attestation, which will exempt you from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Student Health Center.
