June 4, 2021: Information on COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

Dear Tigers:

On April 26, DePauw announced that proof of a COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all students planning to attend this fall.  We believe widespread COVID-19 vaccination will lead to a more robust, vibrant and safe DePauw.  Medical and religious exemptions will be accommodated for all required vaccinations.  

Below is specific information on how to meet this requirement or submit an exemption.  

  • Provide a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card. 

    • First year and transfer students beginning their enrollment this fall 2021, should provide their COVID-19 vaccination information through their Med+Proctor portal. 
    • All returning students should provide their COVID-19 vaccination information through our Google form.  COVID-19 vaccination records are due to the University no later than August 1.
  • To submit a medical or religious exemption, please complete this form.  Completed forms should be returned to the DePauw Health Wellness Center via email, fax or mail; this specific information is listed on the form.  Exemption forms are due to the DePauw Health Wellness Center no later than July 1.

Unvaccinated students (those who submit a medical or religious exemption) will be required to quarantine if identified as a close contact of a confirmed positive COVID-19 individual and participate in monthly asymptomatic surveillance testing. 

High COVID-19 vaccination rates in our campus community is important in order to return to a vibrant community and reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection to our students, faculty, and staff.  We ask that you please complete this short information form by June 13 in order to expedite your return to campus.

If you have questions about the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement, please see our COVID-19 vaccine webpage.
Thank you!
