Immunization Requirements

Your immunization information is a critical component of your medical record. New York State Law requires all college students registering for 6 or more credits to show proof of the required immunizations (see below). You have 30 days from the start of classes to provide Health Services with documentation of these vaccines. Failure to do so will result in a $75 administrative fee, you will not be able to continue classes or register for next semester classes until proof of documentation has been submitted. Out-of-state or international students have a 45 day period. The required immunizations include:

  • 2 MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccines (these doses must be given at least four weeks apart beginning at or after 12 months of age). Laboratory proof of immunity is acceptable. Birth before 1957 in the US is also acceptable for college students.
  • Required for residential students: 1 dose of Meningococcal MCV4 or MPSV4 within the past 5 years.
  • Required for non-residential students: 1 dose of Meningococcal MCV4 or MPSV4 within the past 5 years or a completed waiver.
