On May 4, 2021, OSU announced its intent to require COVID-19 vaccinations for students and employees who learn, work or engage with others in-person during classes or university activities. Students can now comply with this policy by confirming their vaccination status through the patient portal. Information on seeking exemptions to this requirement can be found by scrolling down this page or clicking "student" below. Students must comply with this requirement by Sept. 15, 2021.

If you have questions or concerns regarding COVID-19 or vaccinations, please call the COVID-19 hotline from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. at 541-737-7211.

STUDENTS WILL NEED to complete ONE of the following steps to meet this requirement:

  • Confirm that you have been vaccinated by uploading your card to the patient portal. A vaccine received in another country will be acceptable as long as the vaccine received is approved by the country in which it was administered. Or... 
  • Confirm by completing a form (coming soon) if you have lost your card and upload it to the patient portal. Or... 
  • Claim a medical or religious/philosophical belief exemption from the vaccination requirement by completing the appropriate form declining to comply. 

 

OSU Staff/Faculty: 

After discussions with the Faculty Senate, unions and others, OSU will finalize its policy and implementation details by the Fall.  Stay tuned.
