COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements for CU employees

On April 28, the University of Colorado was among many Colorado higher education institutions to announce a requirement that all students, faculty and staff must have COVID-19 vaccinations before the start of fall semester 2021.

Each campus is managing their own community’s process for vaccination proof and exemptions. We’ve compiled campus resources and requirements here for employee reference. This blog will be updated as the campuses determine vaccination protocols.

CU Boulder

All CU Boulder faculty and staff must either provide proof of vaccination or file an exemption by Sept. 15.

While, the university previously communicated that faculty and staff vaccinated in Colorado would not need to report their information to CU, and that has changed. All faculty and staff must complete the COVID-19 vaccine requirement or exemption in the MyCUHealth Portal. The only exception will be faculty and staff vaccinated through CU Boulder Medical Services. Data from Medical Services will be uploaded to the portal on behalf of faculty and staff vaccinated through Medical Services.

To provide proof of vaccination to CU Boulder:

  1. Login to the MyCUHealth portal.
  2. Select Faculty/Staff Vaccine Compliance.
  3. Select Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination.
  4. Select the vaccine you received and enter your vaccination date(s).
  5. Upload an image of your COVID-19 Vaccine Card, then click Submit.

Information on how to complete an exemption, student vaccine requirements and more is available here.

CU Boulder HR has created guidance for the summer/fall transition for employees returning to campus.

CU Colorado Springs

UCCS is asking all faculty, staff and students be fully vaccinated before the start of the fall semester on Aug. 23. Please take into consideration the number of doses your vaccine requires, as well as the date by which the immunization will be fully effective, typically two weeks after the final dose.

All employees must complete the online attestation form to either notify Human Resources of your vaccination or to apply for an exemption. A similar process will be rolled out to students in the coming weeks.

Bookmark their vaccination page for FAQs, forms and vaccine locations.

CU Denver

CU Denver currently does not have a mechanism to track vaccination statues of employees and students, but a system will be finalized by the end of July 2021. Those seeking an exemption can email vaccineexemption@ucdenver.edu to be added to the exemption notification list to receive an email as soon as the process becomes live.

Until then, the campus will run on the honor system and trust employees and students to take the proper daily safety protocols.

Vaccinated individuals do not have to complete the daily online health check and are not required to wear a mask, effective Aug. 1. 

Non-vaccinated individuals most complete the daily online health check, always wear a mask indoors and get tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis beginning in August 2021.

Additional information and protocols are available on their campus website.

CU Anschutz

All CU Anschutz students, faculty and staff are asked to be fully vaccinated no later than Sept. 1, in accordance with recent policy. Employees, badged affiliates, visitors and volunteers must submit proof of vaccination to an online database. This database will be in place later this summer. Those seeking an exemption must complete an online form, and submit this form in the upcoming database. 

Currently vaccinated and visiting campus? Those who are conducting on-campus activity and have proof of vaccination can receive a “COVID VAX 2021” sticker for their CU Anschutz badge. Stickers are optional. Drop by the Hensel Phelps Auditorium in Research 1 North Building from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday with proof of vaccination to receive one.

Current mask protocols, summer class activity and more are on the CU Anschutz Vaccination Website.

CU System

From Aug. 2 – Sept. 3, CU System will commence a soft transition to the new hybrid work model set in place. The building will be fully open on Sept. 7 and Human Resources recommends employees be fully vaccinated by that time.

Employees will self-report their vaccination status through the employee portal:

  1. Visit my.cu.edu.
  2. From the drop-down menu, click Forms.
  3. Click the Collaborative HR Services tile.
  4. Click the Vaccination Reporting tile. This tile will only be available in System employees’ portals.

They will then be redirected to an online form. System employees can report if they have been fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated or have not been vaccinated. Employees can also report whether they are seeking an exemption.
