Immunization Regulation

Colorado State law requires that students who were born after January 1, 1957, show proof of immunization prior to registering for classes. The required immunizations are against mumps (two doses), measles, (two doses), and rubella (two doses). All on-campus students who are admitted to UNC must submit a Certificate of Immunization form. Students must submit a completed Certificate of Immunization form to Student Health Services before they will be allowed to register for classes. Students who fail to comply with this requirement will not be allowed to register for classes.

Individuals who are unable to be immunized due to medical, religious, or personal reasons are exempt from this regulation if they provide a signed Certificate of Exemption form. In the event of an outbreak of illness on campus, individuals who do not have proof of immunization or who have signed a Certificate of Exemption form will be subject to exclusion from classes and quarantine.

It is a UNC requirement for all incoming international students from countries where TB is endemic to undergo TB screening at the start of their first semester at UNC. Proof of a TB screening test must be submitted to Student Health Services by the 10th day of classes of their first semester at UNC. Students who fail to comply with this requirement will have a hold placed on their registration. Students should contact the Center for International Education (CIE) office at (970) 351-2396 for additional information about this requirement.

A current meningitis vaccine is required if you are living in the Residence Halls (current in last 3 years). Colorado state law does require that you provide the University with acknowledgement that you have received information regarding meningitis. This is accomplished as part of the online housing contract. Please discuss with a health care professional. Students needing the meningitis vaccine should contact the Student Health Center at (970) 351-2412.
