Immunization Exemptions

In accordance with Illinois State Law, DePaul University may grant an exemption to students who have valid reasoning. A student may be exempt from one or more vaccination if the proper documentation is provided.

Types of Exemptions

Medical/Pregnancy Exemption

Signed and dated statement from the student’s medical provider indicating which immunization(s) the student is exempt from, the medical condition that contraindicates such immunization(s), and the duration of the exemption. Student will also need to complete the Medical/Pregnancy Exemption Form.

Religious Exemption

Student will need to complete the Religious Exemption Form. The reasoning must clearly state which immunization the student is requesting exemption from and the specific religious belief that conflicts with the immunization. Religious exemptions must be written by the student.

Distance Learning Exemption

Online only students are exempt from submitting immunization records. This exemption expires at the end of each term and is reapplied as long as the student maintains online only status. Students with distance learning exemptions are not permitted to be on campus at all. Courses listed as in-person, flex, and hybrid are all considered in-person and do not qualify for a distance learning exemption.
