All students returning to in-person learning in Fall 2021 must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Students should schedule vaccinations in their home community and allow appropriate time for full vaccination before their planned return to campus (two weeks post-second shot for two-dose vaccines, or two weeks post vaccination for single-dose).
Babson will accept vaccines authorized by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO) to fulfill this requirement. If currently-authorized FDA or WHO vaccines are not available in a student’s home community, but other vaccines are, students should get vaccinated with whatever option is available to them and upload a record of what they receive. Health Services will be in contact should additional steps be required.
Students who cannot access a vaccine in their home community should contact Health Services and we will work to facilitate vaccination upon arrival to campus.
Full time students will receive an email from Babson Health Services with information about uploading COVID-19 and other immunization records through our secure health portal. Part time students should submit COVID-19 vaccine documentation using the Covid-19 Vaccination or Exemption Form.
Students are asked to provide documentation of any COVID vaccine doses by July 1. Students who are partially vaccinated at the time of their scheduled arrival should return to campus as planned.
Students seeking to request medical or religious exemption should complete the Immunization Exemption Form (pdf) accessible on the Health Services website and Student Portal.
Students who arrive on campus unvaccinated or partially vaccinated will be required to follow specific mitigation measures. Additional information is forthcoming.
