VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS
 
All MCPHS students are required to be fully vaccinated (all required doses + two weeks) or complete a medical/religious exemption request before coming to campus. If you have not done so already, you must be in compliance by the start of the Spring 2022 semester (January 10, 2022). As of December 16, 2021, MCPHS will require all students, staff, and faculty to get the COVID 19 Booster Shot by Friday, February 4, or as soon as your eligibility allows. Please visit the MCPHS COVID 19 site for more information. 

All students are expected to return to campus by the start of the Spring 2022 semester (January 10, 2022). No exceptions or alternative course schedules will be made in this regard, so please plan your travel and/or rearrange your travel plans accordingly. 

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
 
If you plan to travel internationally over the upcoming Thanksgiving Break or Winter Intersession, you must be sure to have all required documentation with you on the day you re-enter the U.S.:
 
Passport valid at least six (6) months into the future
Valid F-1 visa
HARD COPY I-20 with a valid travel signature on page 2. Remember, travel signatures are valid for one year from when they are signed, so if you need to update it, please fill out our online Travel Signature request as soon as possible.
