In general, no. However, some situations – such as participation in certain nursing clinicals, or possibly athletics – may require proof of vaccination.

While it is unlikely campus would need to be closed, Truman demonstrated throughout the pandemic it is capable of pivoting when necessary to provide a quality academic experience in a safe way.
