The Massachusetts Council of Presidents in consultation with Counsel has promulgated a Policy on Vaccination for all students. Please note that the mandate is for students to be vaccinated or receive an approved reasonable accommodation. This Policy has been promulgated as of the Spring 2022 Academic Year.
While the College will make a reasonable effort to place students in a clinical facility, clinical placement cannot be guaranteed in an un-immunized status. If the College cannot secure a clinical placement due to your un-immunized status then you will be unable to complete the program’s clinical requirements. Thus, you will be unable to progress and fall out of the program.
In addition to following the College's vaccination requirement, some Health Science programs (CNA/Tri-Level, Dental Hygiene, Nursing) also require proof of a COVID booster shot in order for students in these programs to fully participate in their clinical or extern learning experiences, per the vaccination or booster policies of the clinical site partners.
Students in the Health Sciences programs are advised to reach out to their program for specific details on the program's vaccination and booster policies.
