Research shows promising signs that approved vaccines might offer protection for a longer time than previously thought, potentially protecting individuals for years. You can help UPIKE achieve our goal of safely returning to campus by getting vaccinated before you return.
Faculty and staff are carefully planning for a return to normal for the fall 2021 semester, but UPIKE will continue to make decisions based on the expertise of local and state health officials.
We ask that students submit a photo of their signed vaccination record at least three days prior to your arrival to campus via the following online form: https://apps.upike.edu/approval/live/vaccine-upload-form.
