8-20 Vaccine mandate extended to include part-time students

This message was sent on Aug. 20 to PC’s part-time students.

Dear Providence College Student,

Effective immediately, PC is expanding its COVID-19 vaccine requirement to include part-time students.

This change is part of the College’s coronavirus management strategy in the context of increasingly challenging conditions, including a high transmission rate in Rhode Island. 

The deadline for compliance is Friday, Oct. 1. By that date, please upload an image of the CDC card verifying completion of an approved protocol (two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) to the College’s database.

Failure to comply will make you ineligible to register for winter or spring term classes.

Please contact us by reply email if you would like information about the process for requesting an exemption on medical or religious grounds.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and best wishes for a successful start to the fall semester.
