Updates to WSU’s Student Vaccination Policy
We appreciate all you have done so far to get vaccinated and help us prepare for a
more robust on campus experience. For the health of our Coug communities, and due to
the increased number of COVID‑19 cases worldwide and the prevalence of the Delta
variant, Washington State University is implementing two changes to its student
The deadline for compliance with the vaccination requirement is now
September 10, 2021
(previously November 1).
This means that by September 10 you must have either provided proof of
initiation or completion of COVID‑19 vaccination or filed an exemption.
The process to do either is available on the Cougar Health Services website.
If you do not complete these steps, it may impact your ability to participate
in campus events and you will need to wear a mask while on campus. You will not be
able to register for spring classes, and a hold will be placed on your student
account. The university may impose further restrictions in the interest of maintaining
public health, until you have complied with the vaccine requirement.
After any of the three currently approved vaccines
receive full FDA approval, personal/philosophical exemptions will no longer
Students will have forty‑five (45) days following the approval date to
provide proof of vaccination (or initiation of vaccination) or file a medical or
religious exemption. Upon FDA approval, the updated process for filing a new
medical or religious exemption will be provided.
Thank you for all you’re doing to help #CougsCancelCOVID.
