COVID-19 Vaccination Health Professions Policy

In accordance with the expectations of our clinical partners, all students who engage in a clinical setting are required to be fully vaccinated from COVID-19 (including receiving any applicable boosters), or have an approved exemption from receiving the vaccination (including any applicable boosters), prior to any clinical exposure or placement. 

Acceptable proof of vaccination is a vaccine card issued by the vaccine provider demonstrating proof of administration of any CDC approved vaccinations and their applicable dose(s), or any other state or federally recognized documentation.

Students may request an exemption from the vaccine requirement for religious or medical reasons by submitting the appropriate exemption request form. Students who receive an approved exemption will be provided with a form that constitutes proof of the exemption. That approval form must be uploaded into American Databank/Complio and/or Castlebranch in order to be a recognized exemption.

Students who receive a vaccine exemption will be required to pay for and undergo weekly COVID-19 testing. A failure to engage in weekly testing, or to comply with the information found on the exemption approval form, may result in a student not being able to engage in a clinical setting in any capacity. 

Please know that any clinical affiliate or clinical training site may require additional documentation and an additional evaluation/approval process to satisfy their internal policies and expectations. Also, even if an exemption is granted by Marian University, a person still may not be able to participate in at a clinical affiliate or clinical training site, due to policies and expectations of a specific institution.

Marian University cannot guarantee a clinical placement or experiences if a specific institution does not acknowledge an exemption granted by our institution, refuses to grant an exemption upon completion of an internal review process, or does not accept exemption requests. This may impact a student’s ability to progress is the curriculum or satisfy the requirements necessary for degree completion and graduation.
