COVID-19 Immunization Requirement

All Rutgers students (new, returning and re-enrolling) are required under University Policy 10.3.14 to be vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they have received a medical or religious exemption approved in writing by Rutgers’ Waiver Review Committee or are exempt from the Policy for any of the other reasons listed in the Policy. 

Complete vaccination documentation must be uploaded to the Rutgers Immunization Portal (NetID and password are required) by a specific deadline indicated each semester. Please visit our central student immunizations page for updated requirements and deadline information.
