Covid-19 Vaccination requirements

Since we do not offer a clinical externship component for Medical Insurance Billing students, there is currently no requirement for Covid-19 vaccinations.

A background check may be required for externships, clinicals and licensing, certification or registration with the appropriate governing board.
