The Blacksburg, Virginia, college disenrolled 134 college students who didn’t submit their vaccination proof to attend fall courses, the Roanoke Times reported.
“They didn’t submit vaccination documentation or obtain a medical or non secular exemption,” college spokesman Mark Owczarski informed the newspaper.
Owczarski stated it’s unclear whether or not any of the scholars who didn’t present vaccination proof weren’t planning to return within the fall for causes unrelated to the mandate.
The scholars represented about 0.4% of the college’s roughly 37,000 college students — and will have accounted for an estimated $2 million to $3 million in undergraduate, in-state tuition charges in addition to room and board, the newspaper reported.
The school introduced earlier this summer time that it will require college students be vaccinated towards the virus by Oct. 1.
In Charlottesville, the College of Virginia disenrolled 238 college students who didn’t adjust to its vaccine guidelines.
