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.
