To Comply with the vaccination policy, begin here: 

NEW — Updated for OSU Employees: Recent federal Executive Order 14042 requires all federal contractors and subcontractors have a fully vaccinated workforce to fight COVID-19. Because Oregon State University has many and various federal contracts and subcontracts, all OSU employees — including student workers — regardless of whether they perform their duties on-site or remotely, are required to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 4, 2022.

The updated OSU COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement applies to all university employees, full-time or part-time, including but not limited to academic faculty, professional faculty, academic wage appointments, classified staff, law enforcement officers, graduate assistants, and student employees, though exceptions are allowed based on medical or sincerely held religious beliefs.

In compliance with this Executive Order, OSU employees, including student employees, must now provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Employees who previously claimed an exemption must either become fully vaccinated or go through a new exception process. For questions regarding this policy please email [email protected].

Students who are not employed by OSU will remain under OSU’s policy effective Sept. 15, 2021, which is only for those who are on-site or engaging in an on-site activity (see the section below titled OSU Students for details).

OSU Student Employees

Recent federal Executive Order 14042 requires all federal contractors and subcontractors have a fully vaccinated workforce to fight COVID-19. The Safer Federal Workforce Task Force subsequently issued guidance to federal contractors on how to implement this new, expansive order.

Because Oregon State University has many and various federal contracts and subcontracts, all OSU employees — including student workers — regardless of whether they perform their duties on-site or remotely, are required to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 2, 2022. We recommend not waiting until the deadline, as these processes take time, and we will need to check for compliance before Jan. 4, 2022.

The updated OSU COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement applies to all university employees, full-time or part-time, including but not limited to academic faculty, professional faculty, academic wage appointments, classified staff, law enforcement officers, graduate assistants, and student employees, though exceptions are allowed based on medical or sincerely held religious beliefs.

In compliance with this Executive Order, employees must now provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Employees who previously claimed an exemption must either become fully vaccinated or go through a new exception process. 

Students who are not employed by OSU will remain under OSU’s policy effective Sept. 15, 2021, which is only for those who are on-site or engaging in an on-site activity (see the section above titled OSU Students for details).

 

Exceptions for Medical and Sincerely Held Religious Beliefs

If applicable, you can apply for an exception for medical reasons or due to a sincerely held religious belief. Starting Friday, Oct. 29, 2021, you can complete new exception forms found below.

Medical exceptions for employees are done through Oregon Health Authority forms that must be signed by a medical practitioner and will be verified by OSU’s Occupational Medicine program within Student Health Services. Exception requests based on religious beliefs will be verified by the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access.  Completion of the exception process is needed as soon as possible, in case your exception request is denied and you need time to become fully vaccinated no later than Jan. 2, 2022, in order to demonstrate compliance with the program before the Jan. 4, 2022 institutional deadline. If an employee fails to comply with the OSU vaccination program, Employee and Labor Relations (ELR) will work directly with the supervisor to engage in an individualized plan of progressive discipline.

 

Please Note: OSU Student employees who have already uploaded proof of vaccination (vaccination card) as an OSU student do not need to take any additional actions.
