Covid-19 Immunization

Effective Sunday, October 31, 2021, all students must be fully immunized to gain or continue access to NC AHEC student housing. In accordance with the CDC definition of "fully immunized" – all students must have completed their vaccine series (2 doses for Pfizer or Moderna) or single vaccine (for Johnson and Johnson) 14 days before arriving at NC AHEC student housing. You will be asked to attest to this as part of your application process and you should be prepared to present, upon request, evidence of immunization for COVID-19. Students that cannot provide such evidence, or who provide fraudulent documentation, will be asked to immediately vacate AHEC housing. Your school will be notified and any future requests for AHEC student housing may not be approved.

Please consider the above requirements before submitting your housing application. You are not required to use AHEC housing and you can cancel any existing housing request (at least 5 days prior to your housing arrival) through your online MYAHEC account.

Some regional AHECs may have additional requirements or may recognize exceptions to this requirement. The local AHEC will notify you of any exception or additional requirements or documentation once your application has been received but all students should be prepared to show proof of vaccination or exception prior to arriving to your housing location.
