Undergraduate 2020-2021

Immunization Regulation


Colorado State law requires all University students born after January 1, 1957, to submit proof of two MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccines. Students must submit immunization records prior to registering for classes at UNC. Students who fail to comply with this requirement will not be allowed to register.

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 residence halls and will be quarantined. The University is not responsible for any liability the student may suffer due to an exclusion and/or 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 351-2396 for additional information about this requirement.

The Meningitis vaccine is required for freshman living in student housing, unless they read and sign the Meningococcal Information and Waiver Document. This document is provided by Residence Life and Education as part of the online housing contract. For all other students the Meningitis vaccine is highly recommended. Students interested in getting the Meningitis vaccine should contact the UNC Immunization Coordinator at 351-1919 for further information on how to obtain this vaccine.
