SUBJECT: COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for the Remainder of Academic Year 2021-2022
(Tinalo’ 2021 Intersession, Fañomnåkan 2022, and Finakpo’ 2022 Summer Sessions)
On behalf of the Board of Regents and the administration of the University of Guam, we thank you for your dedication to your education and for your commitment to the health and safety of your fellow Tritons. All students and employees attending in-person classes this semester are either fully vaccinated or have an approved accommodation. Our safety protocols are working and have kept on-campus transmissions very low throughout the pandemic.
Registration for the Tinalo’ 2021 intersession and the Fañomnåkan 2022 semester will begin in the coming weeks. This memo serves as notice of the vaccination and accommodation requirements for enrolled students during these upcoming semesters.
The guidance presented below may be subject to change on short notice based on evolving guidance through the governor’s executive orders and the Department of Public Health and Social Services.
Students looking to attend only online classes are not subject to any vaccination requirements and may register as normal on their respective registration dates. Visit https://advisor.uog.edu to view the latest course schedule and classes being offered in an online format.
Below are COVID-19 vaccination requirements for all students looking to enroll in in-person classes for Tinalo’ 2021 intersession (Dec.-Jan.), Fañomnåkan 2022 (Jan.-May), and the Finakpo’ 2022 summer sessions.
Proof of vaccination or letters of accommodation must be submitted to the Student Health Office using the secure online HIPAA-compliant form at https://url.uog.edu/submit-covid-info.
Students unable to be vaccinated for medical or religious reasons may seek an approved accommodation from the vaccination requirement for in-person classes. Those seeking a medical or disability accommodation must submit evidence of their medical reason or disability to the EEO/ADA/Title IX office. Students seeking an accommodation for a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance must make an appointment with the EEO/ADA/Title IX office.
To make an appointment, please contact the EEO/ADA/Title IX Office, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, at (671) 735-2971 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information and to report non-compliance, email email@example.com. Important information and resources including links to vaccination clinics and testing sites are available online at www.uog.edu/covid-19.
