Our Plan for Spring 2021

Respect. Protect. graphic with text that says take care of our university community.

On Nov. 18, President John Garvey announced a plan for Spring 2021. In the spring semester, we expect to have a total of 1,172 resident students — each having his or her own private bedroom.

The move-in process will again be staggered over several days, applying the lessons learned by the careful process used last August. All residential students will receive a COVID test as they move into their residence halls January 21-24. In-person classes will be available to all undergraduate and graduate students in spring 2021. Slightly more than 50% of classes are expected to be offered in person, with the rest exclusively online.

Immunization Records

All students under the age of 26 are required by DC Law to submit immunization records.

All incoming students under the age of 26 for Spring 2020 are required to submit their immunization records. The due date is the first day of class, January 13, 2020. A late fee of $100 will be placed on your account if the records are not submitted or are incomplete by that date. Once you have submitted your immunization records and they are complete, it will be listed as "complete" on your Cardinal Station checklist.

All immunization information MUST be entered through the student health portal. Do not fax or scan any records to our office. Records not submitted through the patient portal will NOT be accepted. You will need to enter your vaccination dates on the immunization form on the patient portal AND upload your supporting documentation. This is a two step process. If you have any problems with this, please email staudt@cua.edu.

If you are a current student and have noted that your student account has a hold placed on it for "health" reasons, your immunization record may be incomplete or missing. Please contact Student Health Services at staudt@cua.edu if you have any questions. This hold will prevent you from being able to register for the Spring 2019 semester.

Medical Consent

If you will be under 18 years of age when you start the semester, please have your parents sign and complete the medical consent form. This form is required in order to treat you at Student Health Services.
