A Note on Immunization Requirements

New York State Law requires that students who are on campus for 6 credits or more need to have proof of 2 MMR's (Measles, Mumps & Rubella). This law applies to all students born after January 1, 1957.

A new Public Health Law effective August 15, 2003 makes it mandatory for ALL college students taking 6 or more credits on campus to receive information about Meningitis Disease and Vaccine. ALL students must have a record of receiving the Meningitis Vaccine OR sign a waiver declining the vaccine.

All students will have 30 days from the first day of school to comply with the above requirements. Holds will be put on all your records until these requirements are met. (This means that no transactions can be made on your accounts, example: dropping/adding classes, financial refunds, etc.)
