COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions
Kettering College has updated our COVID-19 vaccination requirement policy. Effective immediately, all students registered in general education (pre-program course), online program students, or non-clinical programs (Health Sciences and Health Care Management) are no longer required to receive either the COVID-19 vaccine series or approved exemption.
If enrolled in a clinical program, students need to work with the clinical program and follow all immunization requirements, which may include the COVID-19 vaccination series. The clinical program will be able to provide you with the program-specific immunization requirements.
Please note COVID-19 policies may be adjusted moving forward for each clinical site. Clinical programs will communicate with students about the updated policies.
The College still strongly encourages students to receive the vaccine.

Kettering College employees should refer to the Kettering Health FAQs, listed here.
Is the seasonal flu vaccination still required, too?
Yes, Kettering College clinical students, faculty, and staff, are required to receive the flu vaccine, or have an approved medical or religious exemption, each fall. More details will be available in the coming months about this year’s flu vaccine clinics.
If I don't get vaccinated, how will that impact my clinicals?
Due to clinical facility requirements, unvaccinated students, including those with approved exemptions from KH/KC, may not be able to participate in their program-required clinical rotations. This may result in the student’s inability to progress in their respective program and/or along the standard timeline. The programs will attempt to develop an alternative clinical site in which the student may participate and complete their clinical rotation, however this cannot be guaranteed due to program and/or clinical site requirements and restrictions.
