Vaccine Policy

CCRI requires all full- and part-time students enrolled for the Fall 2021 semester to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved medical or religious exemption. For additional information, visit our Vaccine Policy FAQs webpage or download our Vaccine Reference Sheet.

The Student Health Records Portal, where you are required to upload your proof of vaccination or exemption forms, is now available online through MyCCRI.

If your vaccination record has not been verified or your exemption request has not been approved by the start of your first in-person class, you will be dropped from all in-person classes. 

COVID-19 vaccination for people in the 18–39 age brackets is especially important. The CDC expects the Delta variant to become the dominant strain in the United States this month. In addition, data shows that the variant causes more serious disease in young adults than earlier strains. The Delta variant also appears to cause significant spread among unvaccinated individuals. Students enrolled only in online classes are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but are not required to upload proof of vaccination or an exemption request to the Student Health Records Portal.

All students registered for the Fall 2021 semester who upload their completed vaccination information to the Student Health Records Portal by Wednesday, August 18 will be eligible to receive $200!* Students who are filing for a medical or religious exemption are not eligible for this incentive.

Remember, in order to be considered fully vaccinated, you must receive the final dose of one of three available vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson) no later than 14 days before your first visit to campus or in-person class in the fall. Free vaccine clinics administering the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available at each of our next four Open Enrollment Days in July and August.

Instructions on uploading your documents

You can access the portal through MyCCRI under the “For Students” tab (select “Verify My Vaccination”). Or, visit on any web browser or mobile device. Use your MyCCRI username and password to access the portal.

1. Click the “Uploads” icon on the homepage.

2. From the “Choose Document You Are Uploading” pulldown menu, choose which file you are uploading – either your medical or religious exemption form or your proof of vaccination.

a. If you have proof of vaccination, you can either scan it to your device and upload it to the portal, or simply upload a photo of your vaccine card. The following file formats are acceptable: GIF, PNG, TIFF, TIF, JPEG, TXT, or PDF. You cannot upload a Microsoft Word file or document.

b. You must also name your file before uploading. Please use only alpha and numeric characters; no special characters or extra spaces are allowed.

3. Hit “Upload” to submit your document.

Vaccination records will take up to 5 business days to process, so upload your completed vaccine record or exemption as soon as possible to avoid being dropped from in-person classes. Once your records have been successfully reviewed and matched, you will be notified via your CCRI email.

If you have difficulty logging into the portal, email the CCRI Help Desk at [email protected]. For any questions on the status of your immunization record, email [email protected] and include your full name and student ID number in your message.

Additional information on the portal is available by downloading our Vaccine Reference Sheet.
