Immunization & Physical Exam 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) received after the first birthday and at least 28 days apart. This law applies to all students born after January 1, 1957. A copy of an official record (such as a high school, prior college or military record) may be submitted to satisfy this requirement.

A 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. A Meningitis information sheet can be accessed here. ALL students must have a record of receiving the Meningitis Vaccine OR sign a waiver declining the vaccine.

You must submit the required health information prior to beginning classes. Holds 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.)

ALL students in ALL programs

A Tb MANTOUX IS REQUIRED FOR:
Students enrolled in the Childhood Education, Early Childhood and PTA programs, and all international students.
