As of August 11, unvaccinated international students and other unvaccinated students traveling to campus from international locations should arrive 7 days before in-person activities to complete entry testing, vaccination, and a period of restricted activity. The university will reach out to these students with further instructions.

As of August 2, all Stanford employees, students and visitors are required to wear face coverings.

in indoor spaces, at crowded outdoor events, and when using public transportation and university vehicles occupied by more than one person.

The deadline for all graduate and professional students who will be enrolled in 2021-22 to meet all health requirements, including being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or requesting an extension or exception, has passed. If you have any questions about the health requirements specific to your circumstances, submit a ServiceNow ticket.

We urge you to make every effort to obtain a COVID-19 vaccination before your arrival on campus. If you are living abroad, get any COVID-19 vaccine available to you. Vaccination resources are listed here.
