Entering the U.S. and COVID-19 Travel Requirements: You must show proof of being fully vaccinated with the primary series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine before you board your flight to the United States. Only limited exceptions apply.

In addition to the federal requirements, the Philadelphia Health Department requires all people at colleges and universities in the city to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All students need to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccine prior to the beginning of the spring 2023 semester in order to participate in in-person, on-campus learning and activities. If you are not yet vaccinated but are permitted entry to the U.S., you will be required to submit a temporary medical exemption while completing a COVID-19 vaccine series. You will be subject to the university’s COVID-19 testing program until you are fully vaccinated. See below on how to provide your vaccine information.
