Vaccinations and Testing

Due to City of Philadelphia mandates, anyone who comes to the College who is not fully vaccinated will be tested before they will be permitted on campus. Masks are required. Starting Oct. 15, all faculty, staff and students must be fully vaccinated. Please see our College COVID-19 Updates for more information.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

October 13, 2021

The City of Philadelphia has recently updated its vaccine mandate for higher education students, faculty and staff. Under the updated mandate, all students, faculty and staff must have their first shot of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by Oct. 15, 2021, and their second shot (if Pfizer or Moderna) by Nov. 15, 2021.

Individuals will be subject to regular testing until they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after their final shot), including those with approved exemptions. This means that employees, students and volunteers who have not submitted proof of their first shot (for Pfizer and Moderna) by Oct. 15, 2021, or do not have an approved exemption, will not be permitted on campus at that time.
