BALTIMORE — Loyola University Maryland will require students be fully vaccinated before the start of the 2021-22 school year in order to attend in-person classes.

All undergraduate and graduate students attending classes in person must receive their final dose of one of the COVID-19 vaccines and send proof of the vaccination to by Aug. 1.

Exemptions, which can be requested through this waiver form, will be granted only for medical and religious reasons.

Students attending in-person classes, activities, jobs or other programs during the summer months are expected to be vaccinated or receive confirmation of a medial or religious exemption by July 1.

Those who do not meet the deadline will not be allowed to participate in such in-person activities.

The university has not required vaccinations for faculty, staff or administrators, but officials said they may require it in the future. More than 50% have reported that they are vaccinated.

Loyola is planning to host a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic on the Evergreen campus on Tuesday, May 25, (for the first dose) and Tuesday, June 15, (for the second dose) for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and administrators. They will provide information on how to register soon.
