COVID-19 Policy

5/1/2023 (may be amended at any time)


Effective as of May 1, 2023, Georgian Court University will no longer require that students be vaccinated against COVID-19. In alignment with Georgian Court’s Catholic value of care for each other, we do strongly recommend that all members of the university community receive the COVID-19 vaccine primary series and bivalent booster. High vaccination levels have protected the university community.

Please note that students and faculty engaged in clinical/field work or other experiential learning are required to follow each clinical or field site’s policies, which may include proof of full vaccination.


We will continue to require all students and employees to inform the University of their COVID-19 vaccination status. Students provide their records on the student health portal; employees provide records to the Office of Human Resources. This allows the university to respond appropriately to any outbreak situation on campus. All students must report positive tests for COVID-19 to Health Services. All employees (staff/faculty) must report positive tests for COVID-19 to the Office of Human Resources.


Georgian Court University is mask friendly. While masks are generally not required, they may be worn by anyone who feels more comfortable with a mask. In addition,

  • Masks MUST be worn in Health Services and the Counseling Center.
  • Masks may be requested to be worn by faculty/staff for specific programs, classes or in certain offices. All members of the Georgian Court community may request that others wear a mask during meetings or other activities. Complying is a sign of respect consistent with our commitment to our care for each other. Please keep a mask with you at all times.
  • Masks may be required indoors if the number of cases rise either on campus or in the community. Notification will be made via the Georgian Court website and signage.
