Vaccination Requirements

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, MassArt has been committed to ensuring academic continuity and crafting a sound safe return plan.

To maintain a safe and healthy campus community, our goal is for all members of our campus community to be vaccinated this semester.

To date, the following MassArt campus constituencies have been notified that they are required to be immunized against COVID-19 with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine for the Fall semester:

  • All students
  • Non-unit professionals
  • Employees covered under the Massachusetts State College Association (MSCA Day) collective bargaining agreement
  • Employees covered under the Association of Professional Administrators (APA) collective bargaining agreement
  • Employees covered under the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) collective bargaining agreement
  • Employees covered under the Division of Graduate and Continuing Education (DGCE) collective bargaining agreement

Students and employees may apply for a religious exemption or a medical exemption; exemption applications will be reviewed and approved by the College, consistent with its obligations under the law.

The health and safety, and the wellbeing of our entire campus community remain our top priority. As we continue to combat the worst global pandemic in more than a century, we are adopting this policy because vaccines are the best way to protect ourselves and our community against the COVID-19 virus.
