According to a statement on the university website from president Michael Lovell, all undergraduate, graduate and professional students will have to meet this requirement to attend classes on school grounds.
"Scientific evidence has shown that vaccines are safe and effective at reducing transmission of the virus. A vaccinated student population will allow us to provide you with a richer in-person experience, reduce testing and let you interact more freely across campus," Lovell said in the statement.
Students can request an exemption for medical, religious or personal reasons, but will be required to undergo testing in order to remain on campus.
