Clinical Site COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate

It has just recently been brought to our attention that some of our clinical partners are requiring students in our Allied Health Programs to be fully vaccinated (two weeks or more removed from a 2 dose series of a vaccine or two weeks or more removed after 1 dose of the J&J vaccine) against COVID-19.  As a result of this and in order to attend clincial at some of the sites, students who wish to enroll in our Allied Health Programs need to submit a copy of their vaccination card as part of their normal required prerequisites prior to beginning their program.  Students who enroll in one of our Allied Health Programs and fail to submit their vaccination card as proof of being "fully vaccinated" will not be entitled to a refund, but will need to withdraw from the program.
