Students in External Placements

  • BGSU students in external placements (co-ops/internships, clinicals, field, student teaching, etc.) must abide all policies and precautions related to COVID-19 in place at the placement site. (Including vaccination/booster vaccination requirements, testing, isolation and quarantine period requirements, and other infection control protocols)
  • Any exemption to COVID-19 precautions including vaccination requirements granted through the University's process will not automatically apply to non-BGSU settings.
  • External placements may have more restrictive exemption policies that BGSU cannot influence or waive.
  • Some programs require co-ops/internships and/or student teaching to complete the major and/or to meet licensure or certification requirements so these experiences cannot be waived.
  • While BGSU will make reasonable attempts to find placements that meet a student’s vaccination status and other preferences, placements that do not require that students be vaccinated cannot be guaranteed and, for some fields, may be impossible to obtain.
  • BGSU is not responsible for delays in degree progression or graduation due to student requested exemptions from COVID-19 policies.
