For Fall 2021, the University will return to the full residential experience that is at the core of the Lynchburg experience. To ensure that we can return to pre-pandemic operations, vaccinations are required for all students, faculty, and staff. Only religious and medical exemptions will be permitted, in accordance with Virginia law.
All students will be required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination or complete one of the exemption forms (medical or religious) via the Student Health Portal. Students with exemptions, who are not vaccinated, must show proof of a negative test completed within five days prior to arrival.
All required health forms are found on the Student Health Portal. Sign in with the same username and password as your University network account.
Full-time undergraduate students are subject to a fine of $200 each semester that the required forms remain incomplete. Due to COVID-19, the $200 fine for incomplete health forms will not be applied to your student account until after the first day of classes.
