All incoming undergraduate and international students must present official documentation of measles immunity which includes two doses of MMR vaccine (dates) or laboratory evidence of immunity (titer). Please see our Incoming Students page for more information on how to upload this to our Patient Portal. 

College-age students especially, should be up to date on recommended meningitis (ACWY & Men B) and tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccines, as well as all other routine immunizations. Meningitis is a highly infectious and potentially deadly infection that can be spread easily living in community settings. Meningitis vaccination is highly recommended for college-age students.

Please refer to the Meningitis information sheet (PDF) and talk with your primary care provider about meningitis vaccination options prior to your arrival on campus.
