UMSON Student COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Requirements

Use the UMB COVID-19 Management Portal to:

  • Approve or deny Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) COVID-19 health information sharing
  • Upload vaccination dose information (if not using CRISP), including booster
  • Request a vaccination exemption

More Information:

* If you are both a nursing student and an employee, student requirements take precedence. 

Updated August 2022

Nursing students who fail to comply with these requirements will not be allowed to complete in-person learning activities at either UMB or USG until they are in compliance.

COVID-19 Vaccination

Students participating in clinical experiences must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and must upload proof of vaccination in two places:

  • UMB COVID-19 Management Portal
    When you receive your vaccine booster, please update the information in the portal. Upon logging in with your UMID and password, you will see a link for "View/Upload Vaccine Booster Documents" at the bottom of the page.
  • CastleBranch (along with your other compliance requirements)

Returning students: If you do not see "COVID Vaccination" on your To-Do List in CastleBranch, call 888-723-4263 to have it added.

Please note that failure to upload documents in both systems will result in you continuing to be not in compliance with clinical site requirements; read more about Clinical Site COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements.

Hospitals and other clinical sites may have their own COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Students engaged in clinical site activities should note that external sites may have stricter vaccine rules than UMB. Being unvaccinated may impact the ability of a student to participate in activities at those external sites and complete the clinical portion of your education requirements, which will impact your ability to graduate.

COVID-19 Testing Requirements

If you physically access a location that is not UMB or USG in your role as an UMSON student, you must comply with any COVID-19 testing guidelines of that site.

Voluntary Activity 

Protect UMB Pledge: This pledge is voluntary, but we highly encourage all UMSON faculty, staff, and students to participate as testament to our dedication in improving the human condition.
