COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Students

Dear CSN Family,

As you know, the State Board of Health has instituted a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all Nevada System of Higher Education students who wish to enroll in in-person courses for the spring 2022 semester. This will not impact enrollment this fall in any way.

Registration for spring 2022 courses begins on or about November 1. Proof of vaccination will be required to enroll in any courses offered on campus for the spring. To complete your vaccination process by November 1 with either of the two-dose vaccines, we encourage students to get the first dose as soon as possible and should be initiate the second dose no later than mid-September.

The COVID-19 vaccination is the most powerful tool to combat the virus and to prevent its spread on our campuses and the broader community.

Vaccination exceptions apply to students who are enrolling in only online courses, those with documented medical reasons, and those who qualify for religious exemptions. Additional information about how to provide proof of vaccination or to ask for a religious or medical exemption will be coming soon.

The CSN North Las Vegas and Charleston campuses have free COVID-19 vaccines available Tuesday through Friday, via a partnership with the Southern Nevada Health District. The Henderson Campus will also have vaccinations available beginning on Tuesday, August 31. All three COVID-19 vaccinations are available at these sites and individuals can choose which vaccine they prefer.

We will continue to bring the CSN community updated information as it becomes available in collaboration with our health and safety and emergency management partners across southern Nevada. We ask that the CSN family continue to be flexible should the need arise to revise direction. Please continue to utilize for communication regarding cases, close contacts, testing, and any questions regarding COVID-19.

Take care and be safe.

Thank you.
