Pepperdine University continues to closely follow the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and has a comprehensive plan in place to protect the well-being of the University community. The University's Emergency Operations Committee (EOC) is working closely with University stakeholders, as well as an outside infectious disease expert; consulting with International SOS regarding international programs and travel risk assessment; and following advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

All faculty, staff, and students participating in Pepperdine-sponsored international programs are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in advance of their departure to the program. Due to the evolving nature of host country policies, immigration requirements, and travel restrictions, there are no exemptions to this policy. Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks after receiving the final dose of a vaccine that is authorized or approved by the Center for Disease Control Prevention and by host country authorities.
