COVID-19 Updates and Information

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

By University System of Maryland mandate, Frostburg State University will require all FSU students and employees on campus for the fall 2021 semester to provide proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or have an approved exemption. Please review the following information carefully.

Documentation Needed

FSU students and employees must supply information from your COVID-19 vaccination card by uploading a photo or file. If you provided information earlier this spring, you will need to provide it again. See medical or religious exemption section information below.

STUDENTS and EMPLOYEES – Upload Directions

Upload your information through the Check-In Portal under the “My Vaccinations” menu option. You will need to provide vaccination information even if you entered information earlier this spring. The deadline for uploading your proof of vaccination is August 1.

Exemptions

Applying for a religious or medical exemption is handled through the Check-In Portal under the “My Exemptions” menu option. Forms and details can be found in the portal. 

Proof-of-Vaccination Cards/Information

If you do not have your vaccination card, you may be able to access your record through your state’s immunization site. The three most common sites for FSU students and employees are:

Important Dates

  • July 1: If you are not currently vaccinated for COVID-19, receiving your first shot or single shot by July 1 or earlier allows you time to schedule your final dose (if two-shot) and enter/upload your information by the August 1 deadline.
  • August 1: Students and employees on campus for fall 2021 will need to have your proof of COVID-19 vaccination information or exemption requests entered by August 1. 
  • August 15: FSU has set August 15 as the date by which you must be fully vaccinated to be on campus for the fall 2021 semester. Note: individuals are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after their second shot for two-dose vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) or their only shot for the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
  • August 30: Classes begin for the fall 2021 semester.

Note: Frostburg State University is currently in discussion with our collective bargaining units regarding vaccination and exemption policies.
