Fall 2021 Restart information

With the ultimate goal of returning our campuses to normal operations, beginning with the fall 2021 semester, all Indiana University (including IUPUI) faculty, students and staff will be required to have a COVID-19 vaccine and be fully vaccinated before returning to campus.  This requirement is part of IU's ongoing successful response to and management of the COVID-19 pandemic on its campuses and will allow the university to lift most restrictions on masking and physical distancing.  For answers to your questions regarding the requirement, how to request an exception and other information, please go to: Vaccine RequirementFor other vaccine related information, please see the vaccine FAQs site.  Additionally, you can find other helpful information from IU Human Resources Covid-19 website; at the IU Care.com program website; and the accommodation request website.
