The news comes several weeks after Rhodes College announced it would charge unvaccinated students a $1,500 fee per semester starting this fall. The college calls it a health and safety fee that is meant to cover the cost of weekly COVID testing unvaccinated students will have to undergo.
At this time, University of Memphis and UTHSC say they have no plans to issue similar mandates.
