Fall 2021 Vaccination Records (updated 8/16/21)

Dear WCU Student,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to review and update our mitigation strategies for the health and well-being of our students. Therefore, students are being asked to submit a record of their COVID-19 immunization.

  • Residential students who provide proof of vaccination will be exempted from randomized screening testing.
  • Non-residential students, or commuter students, who provide proof of vaccination will be exempted from randomized screening testing. Non-residential or commuter students who do not submit COVID-19 immunization documentation will be requested to complete random campus COVID-19 testing.

To upload your vaccination card, log in to MyWCU and click on the Upload Vaccination Card tile from the Student Homepage.

Upload Vaccination Card

Students who update their vaccination records will be entered in a random scholarship drawing held in September. The scholarship amounts are two $2,500 scholarships and one $5,000 scholarship. The deadline to respond is August 24th, 2021.

FOR THOSE STUDENTS NOT YET VACCINATED: Students receiving their first vaccine dose between now and August 30th will be entered into a second $5,000 random scholarship drawing.

Instructions: For this scholarship to be awarded the first week of the semester, students receiving their first vaccine dose between now and August 30th should upload their information using the same method described above. Once their vaccination has been completed, students must enter their final vaccine administration date and updated vaccination card using the same process above.
