  6. Proof of Two Immunizations as required by the State Board of Higher Education: (Not required for admission consideration)
    1. Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). Proof of immunization for measles, mumps, and rubella requires two doses of vaccine given no less than one month apart, or positive serologic tests.
    2. Students ages 21 and younger must provide documentation of immunity against meningococcal disease given at or after age 16.

Upon the student’s request, such records are sometimes available through the student’s high school (or college for transfer students) and can be sent to the University. No student will be permitted to enroll in a subsequent term until immunization or documentation of a waiver is complete.
