RE: Vaccination Requirement Request Approval
The University of Alaska System policy states that vaccination requirements may only be made by exception and may only be approved by the President at the request of the Chancellor.
Consistent with UAA and UAS, I have requested a vaccination requirement for the following:
SINGLE STUDENT RESIDENCE HALLS
Based on my request and President Pitney’s approval, I am herewith authorizing a vaccination requirement (with medical and non-medical-religious exemptions) for that purpose. This action was effective on August 24, 2021 and announced in the COVID-19 Update that day (https://uaf.edu/email/cornerstone/2021-08-24-covid-19-update.php). The deadline for having proof of vaccination or an approved waiver is October 29, 2021.
