Nov. 22, 2021 Memo:

Message from President Free:

In an effort to promote the continued good health of the USJ community, masks will be required indoors for all individuals—even those who are fully vaccinated—after Thanksgiving (as of Sunday, November 28).

As before, masks are not required while actively eating or drinking or for fully vaccinated individuals when in enclosed private offices. At indoor athletic competitions and practices/training sessions, masks are required for everyone in attendance except for players, the coaches, and on-court officials.

Rhona C. Free, Ph.D.

Health Professions Programs

Due to the recently-announced Connecticut Hospital Association Statewide Policy on Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination, it is very likely that many clinical sites will also require trainees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. At this time, the University has not mandated that students get vaccinated against COVID-19, unless living in a USJ residence hall or participating in the athletic program. It is each student’s choice whether or not to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. However, students enrolled in health professions programs who choose to not get vaccinated may not be able to accumulate the core components, clinical hours, and/or supervised clinical experiences required for degree completion, due to/depending upon site-specific requirements, which are beyond the control of the University.

Financial Aid Applicants

You may request a financial aid adjustment due to
changes in your family’s financial circumstances such as
loss or change in employment, death of a parent or
