    • Display the Visitor badge at all times while on campus.
    • Comply with mask-wearing, physical distancing and other protocols in place at the time of the visit.
    • Sign out with Campus Safety at the conclusion of the visit.

  • No minors (under age 17) are permitted inside the campus buildings.
  • Faculty, staff and students must be vaccinated and have documentation submitted and approved to HR or Student Affairs.

  • If you are sick or symptomatic, do not enter.

Submit your Documentation

Beginning with the fall term 2021, we require all faculty, staff and students to be fully vaccinated. This means that you must have been vaccinated by August 3, 2021 to ensure full effectiveness of the vaccine for a return to campus on August 17. Vaccination documentation must have been uploaded to ADP if you are a faculty or staff member. If you are a student, documentation should be uploaded to Castlebranch and/or MedProctor.

For Faculty and Staff

To upload your vaccine documentation in ADP, follow these procedures:

  1. From the home screen, select "Myself" > "Employment" > "My Documents"
  2. On the right side of the screen, select "Upload"
  3. Click to select or drag your document onto the screen.
  4. Change the display name to "Vaccine Document" and select the subcategory "Confidential-Medical Folder,” then "COVID Vaccine" in the drop down menu.
  5. Do not include any effective or expiration dates and select "Save". Your document will be saved in a confidential folder with HR access only.

Contact HR if you have any issues or questions on this process hr@rosalindfranklin.edu

For Students

All students who are not in a 100% online program have immunization and health history requirements as a condition of their enrollment. The requirements are recorded and managed in Castlebranch (continuing students) or MedProctor (new students April 2021 or after). Within the appropriate system, you will see a COVID-19 vaccination question which asks you to report “yes” or “no” to whether you have received your COVID-19 vaccination.

Allowed Exemptions:

  • Medical Exemption
