Submitting vaccine records, booster information, or declaring an exemption

Faculty and Staff

  • Employees should document their vaccine status, including booster information, or declare an exemption in this portal managed by CSU Human Resources.
    • Boosters are encouraged but are not required.
    • Make sure you have your official immunization record in a digital format, such as a scanned copy or photo. 
  • When uploading booster information, you do not need to re-enter your primary vaccine series (first and second doses) information, but you can correct those entries as needed.
    • If you have an existing exemption to the COVID-19 vaccine requirement, you do not need to request a new exemption for boosters. Boosters are encouraged but not required.
  • CSU will accept all COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by the World Health Organization.
  • Do not call Human Resources to request an exemption.
  • Please use the portal or fill out this PDF form and provide it to Human Resources. If you are providing proof of vaccination, please include a copy of your vaccination card.

Students

CSU students can submit COVID-19 vaccine information through the Student Health Portal:

  • If you are a continuing undergraduate or graduate student, complete the COVID-19 vaccine booster form in the “My Forms” section of the portal.
  • If you are an incoming first-year, transfer, or new graduate student starting at CSU in Fall 2022 semester, include your COVID-19 vaccine booster information, if applicable, when you complete the New Student Immunizations Form on the portal. Scroll down for detailed instructions on how to complete this form.
    • New students wishing to declare an exemption to the COVID-19 vaccine requirement can do so through the New Student Immunizations Form. See the instructions below for additional information. 
  • Boosters are encouraged but not required.
  • If you do not have any COVID-19 vaccine forms in the “My Forms” section of your portal, upload a picture of your COVID-19 vaccine booster record by selecting “Document Upload” in the main menu of the portal.

Please allow 5 business days for your record to be reviewed and processed. Once your record has been processed, it will be updated in the “My Profile” section of the Student Health Portal under “Immun History.”

Note: CSU Online students enrolled in a fully-remote program through CSU Online are exempt from the vaccine requirement and do not have to upload their records or obtain an exemption.

I am both a student and an employee. Which portal do I use?

If you take classes and are not paid by CSU, you are a STUDENT.

If you are paid by CSU and are a student employee or graduate assistant (GTA, GRA, or GSA), you are a STUDENT.

If you are paid by CSU and are an administrative professional, state classified, faculty, other employee on a salary, such as a postdoctoral fellow, or you are a non-student hourly employee, you are an EMPLOYEE.

If you aren’t sure which form to complete, please contact HR_service_center@mail.colostate.edu.
