LSUA COVID-19 Response Plan


Campus Updates & Resources

The welfare of students, faculty, staff, and guests is the University’s foremost concern. Accordingly, we are adopting a number of practices to minimize risks. That said, safeguarding the campus community is a mutual obligation. The University will take appropriate steps, but members of the community must also be accountable and responsible for their health and the health of the wider community.

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements

This Spring 2022 semester, LSUA will require all students, faculty and staff to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or complete the necessary opt-out process. The safety of our campus remains our top focus as we continue to provide the highest level of education to our students. We know that currently one of the best ways to minimize the spread of COVID-19, as well as minimizing severe symptoms and health issues, is to receive the vaccine. COVID-19 remains a serious health concern to all of us and we take seriously the responsibility of providing a safe and secure environment to our students, faculty and staff.

Students, faculty and staff must submit proof of vaccination or formally opt-out via the exemption/waiver form available on

Students: Must complete prior to Spring 2022 registration

Staff & Faculty: Must complete by January 1, 2022
