COVID-19 Administrative Protocol


  • April 28, 2021, President Schulz announced WSU system wide plans for COVID-19 vaccination.
  • WSU intends to require the COVID-19 vaccination system-wide for all employees, volunteers and affiliates engaging in activities at a WSU work location.
  • The specific implementation date has yet to be determined. Details are still being developed and will be communicated once finalized.
  • We appreciate everyone’s patience as we all wait for confirmation the requirement will apply to employees and subsequent guidance on how to submit vaccination information, exemption requests and the appropriate secure maintenance of information. We are told that once a decision is confirmed and details are known, HRS will communicate next steps on dates, requirements, exemptions and the process as a whole.
  • Employee COVID-19 Vaccination FAQs are available on the HRS website. Additionally, the WSU COVID-19 Response Team have posted a variety of basic vaccination FAQs online at WSU COVID-19 FAQs.  FAQs related to the announcement are being and will continue to be added and updated as we know more about the intended implementation.
  • As a reminder, employees continue to need to complete their COVID-19 self-attestation every day they report to a physical WSU work location. Locations include all campuses, extension locations and satellite offices. Face coverings and social distancing are still required in accordance with WA Department of Health guidelines.
  • For student-related questions and all other inquiries, please email
  • For employee related questions please review WSU COVID-19 Employee Information or contact HRS at or 509-335-4521
