My work doesn't require it, but my school does so it's apparently not illegal. I finished all classed for my grad program, and only had my thesis left when the virus hit. I put everything on hold because I wasn't dealing with all the school's bulllshit. Now, w/ them requiring the vax, I guess I'm just not finishing. I wish I had the funds to get a lawyer, because I feel like I should be able to get at least some of my money back (for a number of reasons/not just the vaccine). I won't go into the other reasons, but at least pertaining the vax: when I enrolled, it wasn't a requirement, and now it is. I never agreed to this and didn't enroll when it was required, so I feel like there's gotta be some kind of breach of contract or something. They're making my eligibility to finish an already started degree contingent upon something that was not a requirement when I officially accepted/enrolled.

Yeah I really want to. Like... realllllllly want to. Even before this, I was talking back and forth with James Lindsay about a number of issues, and even he recommend I take prosecutorial action. I just don't know how I'd afford a lawyer, let alone one that can successfully go up against one of the most prestigious schools that has a multi-billion dollar endowment fund lol

Most schools have some form of "college catalog" that is essentially your immutable contract with the school. Any modifications including correcting typos is done through addendum so as to not edit the original contract.

Locate whatever document serves as your contract from when you first enrolled and read thoroughly. Use the wayback machine or whatever archive website to pull the file from that point in time if it no longer exists on their public facing pages.

Also, think about mentioning real fear of death, anxiety, and other mental anguish they are foisting upon you by forcing you to choose between the degree and taking a non fda approved experimental technology. See if remote/ online will suffice for the thesis.
