Please see the UC COVID-19 vaccination requirement below for in-person learning. International Students can find additional information on their specific program pages.  UCLA Extension continues to monitor developments pertaining to COVID-19, including the latest guidance from the State of California and the County of Los Angeles.

UC COVID-19 vaccination policy

This is subject to certain medical exemptions and accommodations based on disability or religious belief, and deferrals are available for those who are pregnant.

Dear Bruin Community,

Today, the University of California announced a proposed policy for review that would require all UC faculty, staff, academic appointees and students to be vaccinated against COVID-19, subject to limited medical and religious exemptions. The requirement would go into effect by the beginning of the fall term, provided at least one of the vaccines has full approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is readily available. The details of this proposed policy can be found in the UC Office of the President’s announcement, the text of which is below.
