COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

After consulting with health and medical officials and with the University’s goal to open fully in the Fall and provide a safe campus for our community, we have decided to require the COVID-19 vaccine for everyone on campus – students, employees, and our valued partners. This decision, made by the COVID-19 Task Force in consultation with senior management, will allow Lasell to open our campus with minimal restrictions, thus providing our students with the best possible experience, both academically and socially.

Students

Lasell University will require a COVID-19 vaccination for all students who take classes or reside on campus by the start of the Fall semester. This policy includes residential and commuter students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. 

  • Those who plan to request a medical or religious exemption are required to reach out to the Director of Health Services, Richard Arnold (RArnold@lasell.edu) before July 26.
  • Once you are fully vaccinated, you will need to upload a copy of your vaccination card to the Health Services portal.

Employees

All employees will be required to receive their second shot of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or the single shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine by August 1. Learn more.
