PROOF OF IMMUNIZATION
MMR Vaccine (required)
All enrolled students are required to provide proof of measles (rubeola) immunity. Students will not be allowed to register for any classes until the UW Tacoma Registrar's Office confirms that they have satisfied this requirement. Students born before 01/01/57 are considered to be immune to measles and therefore do NOT need to submit proof of immunity. For more information, contact the Office of the Registrar at 253-692-4913 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
COVID-19 vaccines and prevention
In order to protect the health and safety of our community, the University of Washington is requiring all students and personnel to be vaccinated against COVID-19, with certain exemptions allowed. You will need toverify that you’ve been vaccinated or declare an exemption:
As soon as possible after the second dose of a 2-dose series or after a 1-dose vaccine, after they have decided to declare an exception, or by the start of autumn quarter on September 29, 2021, whichever date is earliest.
Students who are unable to get vaccinated until after arriving on campus may submit their form by November 5, 2021. If you haven’t been able to get a vaccine where you live, we will have vaccinations available when you arrive.
A hold will be placed on winter quarter registrations if your form has not been submitted by November 5, 2021.
If you’re fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a face covering in most settings on campus, with some exceptions including health-care and child-care facilities. People who aren’t fully vaccinated must continue to wear face masks indoors at UW campuses and facilities. You can read all the details about our UW Face Covering Policy from Environmental Health & Safety.
Of course, you’re always welcome to continue wearing face coverings wherever and whenever you wish for any reason. And just as in the broader community, our University includes individuals who are unable to be vaccinated or whose medical conditions put them at higher risk for infection.
UW Tacoma is fortunate to have an outstanding Facilities team who keeps our classrooms and buildings safe all day, every day. If you’d like a deep dive into our cleaning and safety protocols, UW Environmental Health & Safety has a wealth of information on its COVID-19 resources page including its building readiness guidelines.
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Students are responsible for knowing policies and procedures as outlined by the UW Graduate School, the Education Program, and the University of Washington Tacoma.
Student Satisfactory Progress Policy can be reviewed in the EdD Student Handbook.
Graduate students who are on approved leave are eligible to register for the quarter immediately following the expiration of the on-leave period.
Summer quarter On-Leave applications are not required.
If a student becomes inactive (does not go on-leave and does not register for any given quarter) and wishes to enroll in a future quarter, there will be a $250 reinstatement fee: Graduate request for reinstatement. Requests will first be reviewed and approved by the department. Once the department has approved the request and the Graduate School has confirmed student's eligibility for reinstatement, students will be notified to pay a non-refundable reinstatement fee before registering for the requested quarter of reinstatement. More information can be found in the EdD Student Handbook.
