COVID-19 Vaccination and Booster

In support of Rutgers’ commitment to health and safety for all members of its community, the University has updated its Immunization Requirements for Students to include vaccination against COVID-19. (Read Policy 10.3.14 COVID-19 Immunization Record Requirement for Students). This health policy update means that, with limited exceptions, all students must be fully vaccinated, receive a booster shot when eligible, and upload record of these vaccinations to the Rutgers Student Immunization Portal. A valid NetID and password are required.

Students who are not compliant will not be permitted to register for courses.



Please review information about COVID-19 testing for students on the COVID-19 Testing Program webpage. Additionally, CDC guidance on testing can be found within their COVID-19 website.

Quarantining and Isolation

The Centers for Disease Control offers an interactive Quarantine and Isolation Calculator that provides valuable information and guidance for individuals with COVID-19 and for those who have had close contact with an infected person. The CDC tool provides guidance on face coverings, testing, and isolation. All employees and students with COVID-19 or who have had close contact with a person with COVID-19 should follow the recommendations provided by the Quarantine and Isolation Calculator.

Students who test positive for COVID-19 (via PCR or antigen test), regardless of whether they have symptoms, should follow the advice provided from the CDC calculator, inform their campus Student Health office of positive test results if they live in campus housing, and follow up with their personal physician/urgent care. Students living on campus in university housing are urged to return home for isolation whenever possible.
