6/17- COVID-19 vaccination requirements for attending USC in fall 2021.

Dear USC Students:

Please review the information below regarding COVID-19 vaccination requirements for attending USC in fall 2021.

COVID-19 vaccination: USC  policy requires all students to be vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit a personal declination. Students are required to complete uploading vaccination documentation by July 15 . Students with a declination will be required to complete regular surveillance testing. (Note: declinations forms are no longer accepted, as of revised university policy dated June 29)

If you are an international student unable to obtain vaccination by this date due to shortages in your location, you may arrange to receive vaccination through USC Student Health upon arrival to the United States. Meeting this COVID-19 safety requirement is mandatory in order to start attending classes on campus this fall semester. Online degree program students are exempt from this requirement. For new students starting in-person for the first time at USC, see complete instructions for new students arriving at USC.

As part of the USC COVID-19 Safety Requirements, all USC students must complete:“Health, Hygiene and Safety for Students” — This module will be available beginning on August 1, 2021 at trojanlearn.usc.edu. The module takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and provides an overview of COVID-19 safety. All students are expected to comply with COVID-19 safety requirements; non-compliance is a violation of USC’s community standards that may result in student conduct disciplinary measures.
