We strongly urge each student to meet these requirements before arriving to campus. Making arrangements to meet these requirements once you are on campus could be costly, time consuming and involve off-campus appointments.
All first time, full-time and part-time students must provide proof of the following:
(Measles, Mumps and Rubella)
Two doses of MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccination at least 28 days apart after 12 months of age
Two doses of varicella-containing vaccine at least 12 weeks apart if vaccinated between 1 and 12 years of age and at least 4 weeks apart if vaccinated at age 13 year or older.
ACCEPTABLE ALTERNATE PROOF OF IMMUNITY FOR MEASLES, MUMPS, RUBELLA AND VARICELLA:
One dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) administered at age 16 or older
Or Sign a waiver declining the vaccine. The
waiver form is available on the Health Services page on the University’s website.
*Refer to the full Immunization Policy.*
