With the ultimate goal of returning our campuses to normal operations, beginning with the fall 2021 semester, all Indiana University (including IUPUI) students, faculty and staff will be required to have a COVID-19 vaccine and be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption before returning to campus. This requirement is part of IU’s ongoing successful response to and management of the COVID-19 pandemic on its campuses and will allow the university to lift most restrictions on masking and physical distancing.

A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after having all doses of a vaccine (2 doses for Pfizer, Moderna; 1 dose for Johnson & Johnson).

If you have questions about receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, exemptions or know you won't be fully vaccinated before returning to campus, just let us know.

Please feel free to reach out to or 812-855-4848.

How to report your COVID-19 vaccine

All current students, faculty and staff will use IU’s COVID-19 vaccine report form to attest that they are vaccinated and report all doses of your vaccine. Incoming students should plan to complete the self-report form once have created their IU email account.

Exemption Request Process

Approved exemptions include:

  1. Religious exemptions.
  2. Ethical exemptions.
  3. Medical exemptions with documentation from your provider of an allergy to the COVID-19 vaccines or their components.

  4. Medical deferrals for the following circumstances with a note from your provider:
    1. Active pregnancy or active breastfeeding only if the provider is requesting an exemption. The exemption lasts only until you're no longer actively pregnant or actively breastfeeding. Pregnancy and breastfeeding are not contraindications for vaccination.
    2. Immunocompromised individuals only with provider request for an exemption and only for those who have recent (within the past 3-6 months) hematopoietic or solid organ transplant, or on active treatment with Rituximab within the past 3-6 months.
    3. Have received COVID-specific monoclonal antibodies in the past 90 days.

  5. An online program exemption for students who are in a 100% online program with no on-campus component. This must be an online program; not simply taking all online classes.

You can request an exemption using the online request form. IU’s Medical Response Team, among other designated IU leaders, will promptly review exemption requests, responding within five business days.

New employees will be provided with information regarding Indiana University's COVID-19 vaccine policy, which includes the opportunity to request an exemption. To learn more, view our COVID-19 vaccine information page.
