Pre-Test Required for all Students

Regardless of vaccination status, prior to arrival on campus: All students, regardless of vaccination status, must submit to the CoVerified app or to healthservices@mitchell.edu, a negative PCR or Antigen test result, taken within 72 hours prior to their first day on campus.

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements for Students

Mitchell College looks forward to welcoming our returning and incoming students to campus for Fall 2021 with:

  • in-person classes
  • in-person career experiences and internships
  • a return to campus life that more closely resembles the Mitchell College experience we all appreciate
  • a full slate of campus activities, athletics and performing arts events, and community service and engagement opportunities

For this full in-person experience to happen safely, Mitchell College will require all Mitchell and Thames students, both resident and commuter, to be fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine prior to returning to campus.

If you have not yet submitted your vaccination record, please do so now (directions below). It is essential that you submit proof of vaccination prior to your return to campus. Students must complete this step by August 15.

To find a vaccination site near you, visit vaccines.gov.

I'm an incoming student. How do I submit my vaccination record to the College? Is there a deadline?

By August 15, 2021 a vaccination record must be submitted to the College.

Students who have not uploaded their vaccination card or who have not been granted an exemption will not be allowed on campus.

If you haven't already submitted your COVID-19 vaccination record to us, here are the steps:

  • Scan or take a picture of your completed COVID-19 vaccination record/card (2 doses of Pfizer or Moderna/1 dose of Johnson & Johnson)
  • Submit the following to healthservices@mitchell.edu with the subject line “COVID-19 Vaccination Card”:
    • the image of your completed COVID-19 vaccination record/card
    • your full name and date of birth
    • the name of the clinic or facility that administered your vaccine
    • the date your vaccination was given (if the type of vaccination you were given included two doses, enter the final dose date)

Submit via the CoVerified app:

The process is very simple, but if you have any technical difficulty, email Mitchell IT at support@mitchell.edu, and include the best way to contact you, and we will reach out to try to help. Do not email vaccination records to this address. If you have trouble accessing the app, log out and log back in – there has been an update to the system, and this should get you back on track.

Use these steps to upload to CoVerified:

  1. Log into the CoVerified app either on your phone or computer
  2. If you haven’t already done so, update your CoVerified app
  3. Click on “Report”
  4. Click “Upload Vaccine Record” from the menu
  5. Click “Select Vaccine Type” and then click “COVID-19 Vaccine”
  6. Under “Date performed”, enter the date your vaccination was given (if the type of vaccination you were given included two doses, enter the final dose date)
  7. Under “Name of healthcare facility”, enter the name of the clinic or facility that administered your vaccine
  8. Under “Attachment,” click “Choose”. A menu will appear allowing you to choose how to add your record. You can:
  • Load a file from device, which allows you to choose a file on your phone or computer
  • Load image from device, which allows you to choose an image saved on your phone or computer
  • Take a picture – perhaps the easiest way to add your record via your cell phone. Simply click this option, allow access to your camera, and your phone camera will open; take a photo of your record (ensure the entire record is visible in the picture) 
  • Click “Submit”
Helpful Vaccination Calendar

Classes begin August 30. You will reach full immunity two weeks after your final dose, so plan now to be fully vaccinated by the date of your arrival on campus:
