If MMA or a relevant authority does impose such a requirement, a rider registered to stay on-campus but unable to provide adequate proof of Covid-19 vaccination must find off-campus accommodations; they will be entitled to have their MMA lodging fee either refunded or attributed to their fundraising balance.
