Immunization & Physical Exam Requirements

New York State Public Health Law requires students who are on campus for six credits or more, to meet the requirements below:

  • MMR Vaccines: All students born on or after January 1, 1957 must document immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. 
  • Meningitis Vaccine: All students must also document that they either have received the meningococcal (meningitis) vaccine or have declined to receive it. A Public Health Law effective August 15, 2003 makes it mandatory for ALL college students taking six or more credits on campus to receive information about Meningitis Disease and Vaccine.

PROOF OF IMMUNIZATIONS-- All students in ALL programs must submit this immunization form before the first day on campus: IMMUNIZATION FORM 

Students must submit the required health information prior to the first day on campus. A hold will be placed on your student account until these requirements are met. (This means that no transactions can be made on your student account - i.e.: dropping/adding classes, financial refunds, etc.) A copy of an official immunization record (such as a high school, prior college or military immunization record) may be submitted to satisfy these requirements.
