On April 23, 2021, University System of Maryland (USM) Chancellor Jay A. Perman announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all USM campuses, including The University of Baltimore.
On April 28, President Kurt L. Schmoke announced to the campus community that if you plan to be on campus in the fall, the deadline for receiving your full vaccination against COVID-19 (all shots, plus the CDC-recommended waiting period of two weeks after your final dose) is Aug. 1, 2021. This allows sufficient time prior to School of Law orientation (Aug. 16-20) and the start of law classes (Aug. 23), as well as UBalt orientation (Aug. 24-26) and the start of undergraduate and graduate classes (Aug. 30). With a mix of in-person and online classes scheduled across the University, this timeline allows us to adequately prepare for the start of the semester.
Proof of Vaccination
Prior to arriving on campus, all UBalt students and employees must submit documentation that shows they have received a full course of COVID-19 vaccination.
You may sign the Health Information Privacy (HIPAA) release to allow us to verify your vaccination through CRISP (Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients).
Option 1: If you have been tested within the boundaries of the Chesapeake Region, authorize CRISP to share COVID-19 testing and vaccination information with The University of Baltimore.
Option 2: Alternatively, complete this internal Proof of Vaccination Form and upload the document.
To review and print your Maryland vaccination records, visit Maryland MyIR.
Prior to arriving on campus, all UBalt students and employees who seek a medical exemption to the vaccination requirement must fill out the Medical Exemption form. Then, please work with your physician to certify your exemption request.
Step 1: Submit Medical Exemption Form
Prior to arriving on campus, all UBalt students and employees who seek a religious exemption to the vaccination requirement must fill out the Religious Exemption form.
A Note for Bargaining Unit Employees
Negotiations are ongoing with AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) regarding vaccine implementation procedures applicable to bargaining unit employees.
