NSHE Student Vaccine Mandate Expires

Dear CSN Family,

This is to inform you that the emergency regulation to require a COVID-19 vaccination for NSHE students has expired. Today, the Interim Legislative Commission met, and item R069-21 (vaccination requirement) failed to pass, effectively eliminating the legal basis for student vaccines to be a requirement for registration for classes at NSHE’s institutions. This includes CSN students.

Following the direction of the Legislative Commission, we will immediately begin the process of lifting student registration holds related to the COVID-19 vaccination requirement.

Although the student vaccine regulation is now expired, we still strongly encourage those who are unvaccinated to seek medical advice and make plans to get vaccinated. 

The Board of Regents’ NSHE employee vaccine requirement remains in place, as does the current state mask mandate for the NSHE community.
