Virginia Tech, Xavier latest universities to disenroll students who don’t get Covid vaccine
Virginia Tech and Xavier University in New Orleans are the latest colleges to disenroll students for not following their Covid-19 vaccine mandates.
Many colleges and universities across the country are requiring students to submit proof they have been vaccinated. Violators at some colleges have faced fines, others found themselves dropped from their schools.
Patrice Bell, Xavier’s Chief of Staff and Vice President of Administration, said last week the university began disenrolling students who were not vaccinated against the coronavirus on Aug. 23, when classes began. She told WWL-TV of New Orleans that all students were told that they needed to meet the vaccine requirements by mid-July.
Bell said the school decided to disenroll unvaccinated students because the best “pathway to success for these students we serve was to mandate to vaccinate.”
“Some people are making personal choices and we respect those choices but we, as Xavier, have to make a decision based on the overall best interest of the entire community,” Bell said.
The school did not say how many students have been dropped, but Bell told the news station that a majority of the student population is vaccinated. According to the school’s website, the total enrollment for fall 2020 was 3,384.
Officials at Virginia Tech have disenrolled more than 130 students who either did not submit their vaccination documentation or did not receive an exemption, the school said on its website.
