COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements
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.
Registration for the Spring 2022 semester is now open. For those who plan to be on campus for courses, to access services or facilities, or to attend events, we will continue to follow the University System of Maryland's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Undergraduate and graduate students registering for in-person or hybrid classes for Spring 2022 must comply with the USM mandate by Friday, Jan. 14, 2022.
There are a number of free vaccination and testing sites located less than a mile from campus. The State Center site (click on the map above), 300 W. Preston St., is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Call 410.649.6200 or schedule an appointment here.
COVID-19 testing only is available at the Franciscan Center, 101 W. 23rd St., is open on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call 410.467.5340 for an appointment.
If these sites are not convenient for you, please utilize this Maryland testing finder.
If you have questions or need additional information, contact our Case Manager for Student and Employee Health, Stephen Mogar, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have already complied with the USM vaccine mandate, no other action is required. If you are in the University's testing protocol, please continue to comply with this important health initiative.
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: Complete this internal Proof of Vaccination Form and upload the document.
Option 2: Alternatively, if you have been tested within the boundaries of the Chesapeake Region (Maryland and the District of Columbia), authorize CRISP to share COVID-19 testing and vaccination information with The University of Baltimore.
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.

Staying Safe on Campus
The University of Baltimore will ensure that all individuals accessing campus have abided by the USM vaccine mandate, whether by vaccination or exemption. All students, staff, and faculty will be required to adhere to UBalt's protocol regarding face coverings, social distancing, and safety precautions.
Testing protocols will differ for vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals, but all individuals accessing campus will be tested periodically. Student and employee support personnel will not divulge information as to vaccination status.
