Faculty, Staff, Adjuncts, Professionals in Training, Residents, and Fellows
All University of Minnesota faculty, staff, adjuncts, professionals in training, residents, and fellows must provide proof of vaccination or submit a religious or medical exemption from the vaccination requirement to the “Report a Vaccination or Exemption” form on the My Info tab in MyU.
Please note: Faculty, staff, adjuncts, professionals in training, residents, and fellows who provided proof of vaccination or submitted a religious or medical exemption previously do not have to do so again.
New employees must fill out the form on their first day of work. More information on how to do this can be found on the Office of Human Resources’ Vaccination Requirement webpage and the Vaccination FAQ page. Providing proof of vaccination is required under the University's COVID-19 Vaccination and Safety Protocol Requirements for University Employees and Student Workers.
Questions about this process and expectations should be discussed with supervisors/managers or unit Human Resources leads. You can also call the Office of Human Resources Contact Center at 612-624-8647 (800-756-2362) or email [email protected].
All University of Minnesota students* (including all undergraduate, graduate, professional, and Post Secondary Enrollment Option) must provide proof of vaccination or submit a religious or medical exemption from the vaccination requirement to the “Report a Vaccination or Exemption” form on the My Info tab in MyU. Students who want to work for the University must fill out the form on their first day of work.
*Students who are both 1) in specific fully online or offsite programs and 2) are not employed by the University, are exempt from the requirement; please check with your degree program for more information.
Please note: Students who were employed by the University in the 2021-2022 academic year and previously provided proof of vaccination or submitted a religious or medical exemption do not have to provide it again.
Students who do not complete the “Report a Vaccination or Exemption” form will be out of compliance with the University’s vaccination requirement and prohibited from registering for future classes.

I am an undergraduate or graduate student worker who submitted a medical or religious exemption during the 2021-2022 academic year to the Student COVID-19 Immunization Vaccination Form. Do I need to submit my exemption again?
No. You do not need to take further action unless you wish to change your status to vaccinated.
How will I know if my proof of vaccination or medical or religious exemption is accepted?
You will not receive an email saying you have successfully completed the process or that your exemption has been approved. You only receive an email if there is a missing document or another issue with your certification or exemption.
Will those who have exemptions be required to submit to regular COVID-19 testing?
Employees with exemptions are required to get tested weekly on the honor system. Those who are not employed by the University do not have specific testing requirements at this time, but are urged to follow the University’s MTest guidance.
