COVID-19 Requirement

We are dedicated to ensuring the safety of our students and staff/faculty as we navigate returning to our USF campus in Fall 2021.

Visit USF Together for more COVID guidance, the latest news on reopening, and resources to stay safe and informed.

COVID-19 Training Modules (EVERFI)

This fall 2021 semester, the "Staying Health in a Changing Environment," EVERFI Course will be required for all students studying or living on-campus. Students who are in an online program are excluded from taking the course. Students who are registered for the fall 2021 semester and all returning students will receive an invitation from EVERFI to take the course.

The COVID-19 online course has been designed to provide you with important information and facts about COVID-19, effective strategies to protect yourself and others, and information to prepare you for returning to our USF campus and contributing to making our community as safe as possible.

Students who fail to complete the course by August 24, 2021, they will be charged a $100 late fine. If you do not receive your invitation, please contact hps@usfca.edu

After you finish the course, we strongly recommend you download a copy of your certificate of completion for your records.

Vaccination Requirements for Return to Campus

The University of San Francisco will require all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as all faculty and staff employees, to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for fall 2021. The requirement will go into effect at the start of the fall semester on Aug. 24.

As of June 1, 2021, here is a list of vaccinations that will meet your requirement:

  • Pfizer (two doses) 
  • Moderna (two doses) 
  • Johnson & Johnson (one dose) 
  • AstraZeneca/Covishield (two doses) 
  • BIBP/Sinopharm (one dose) 
  • Sinovac/Coronavac (2 doses)

If you have received your COVID-19 vaccine, either dose 1 and/or 2, please upload all vaccine results to Med+ProctorPlease note: students only need to provide their USF email, student ID and name to create their account. After registering your information and completing your free online profile, you may choose to pay an optional one-time fee of $10 for membership benefits, but it is not required.

With proper documentation, USF will accept medical exemptions and religious beliefs exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine requirement. Medical exemption requires a letter from a health care provider stating that the immunization is medically contraindicated. Proof of medical exemption can be submitted directly to Med+Proctor.

Religious beliefs exemptions will only be accepted for the COVID-19 vaccine (and not other USF-required immunizations). An exemption requires a signed written statement from the student describing the reason for the exemption. Statements must be signed and submitted to USF Health Promotion Services using this form.

Dons Health Check

The Dons Health Check survey is highly recommended to be completed by all students who are coming to USF campuses. This can be accessed through the myUSF portal. The purpose of this is to keep our onsite population healthy through tracking daily health checks in order to identify any symptoms of illness early on, thereby limiting the viral spread of COVID-19 at USF.

To access the Dons Health Check, log on the USF Mobile application and the Student Hub.
