Dear SDSU Faculty and Staff,

Today, the California State University shared the approved policy for its COVID-19 vaccine requirement for fall 2021. All CSU system employees, including those at SDSU, are subject to this requirement.

What You Need to Do

While the meet-and-confer process is ongoing, we highly encourage that by Monday, Aug. 16, all employees upload COVID-19 vaccination documentation via the HealtheConnect portal. This includes both non-represented and represented employees.

As defined in this CSU policy, to which all campuses must adhere, all faculty, staff and students who will be physically present on campus this fall must be both vaccinated against COVID-19 and have a vaccine record on file.

We continue to be incredibly encouraged by the high rates of vaccination already reported by our faculty and staff, along with more than 25,000 of our students. For those who have not yet uploaded your information, or who have any questions:

  • Online instructions are available for the HealtheConnect upload process. Note: this is different from the self-attestation form that most faculty and staff already completed this summer.

  • Information on submitting a COVID-19 vaccination exemption request for medical or religious reasons can be found here, also with a deadline of Monday, Aug. 16.

  • If you have not yet been vaccinated, details on how to find a COVID-19 vaccine are available online and same-day appointments can be made.

  • Should you have additional needs, visit the faculty and staff section of the support services list, where you can find ways to connect with employee assistance offices.

Each of you is a vital member of our community, providing critical and needed support and services to our faculty, students, visitors and other staff members. We thank you for all that you do in support of our one SDSU community.
