A New Jersey student says he is barred from taking classes at Rutgers University because he is unvaccinated, despite him studying virtually from home.
Logan Hollar, 22, told NJ.com he ignored the school’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate because his classes were remote and was living at his home in Sandyston, 70 miles away from the Rutgers’ campus in New Brunswick. Hollar, a senior at Rutgers, was locked out of his Rutgers email and accounts when he went to pay for his tuition last month and was told he needed to be vaccinated, even though he had no intent of going to classes in person.
Hollar has missed the start of classes and it may be weeks until he finds out if his exemption application for the vaccine mandate will be honored. He stated to NJ.com “I’ll probably have to transfer to a different university.” His stepfather noted he is “dumfounded” by the university’s stance. Hollar already chose to remove himself from the campus and go online so to be removed from online classes “seems a bit crazy.”
A spokesperson from the university states how the exemption works and how students “should expect a two-to-four-week turnaround, during which time they will not have access to university systems.”
