Medical & Religious Exemptions to COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

Students and employees may request exemptions to the vaccination requirement, per the CU Anschutz COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. Please note that your exemption request will be reviewed, and you will be contacted by a campus representative to validate that request; until it is validated, you are not cleared to be on campus after September 1, 2021.

Unvaccinated individuals with approved exemptions on file must take part in the mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing program.

Medical Exemptions

Medical exemptions require the signature of a licensed medical provider, so please plan accordingly. Students and employees may download the medical exemption forms using the links below. Please note that the medical exemption forms were updated August 20; ensure you are using the current form and including additional clarification.

Students who are filing an exemption request must submit the exemption form to their school or program, and submit an exemption request using the vaccine verification system. Students can then forward their confirmation email to their school or program.

Employees must submit their provider-signed medical exemption form through the vaccination verification system. Please have your signed form ready to upload in JPG or PDF format as you complete the vaccine verification process.

Religious Exemptions

Religious exemptions require employees to attest to their exemption based on religious beliefs.

Employees may claim a religious exemption within the vaccination verification system. There is no form necessary for employee religious exemptions; you may simply select this option as you complete the vaccine verification process.
