MANDATORY MENINGITIS COMPLIANCE (Health Services)

MANDATORY IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

New York State law requires that, beginning August 1990, all matriculated students registered for 6 or more credits born on or after January 1, 1957 will be unable to register without proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella.

A physician’s statement or a copy of a student health record from a previously attended school, which properly documents this immunization, is acceptable. Any student living on campus, regardless of matriculation status, must comply with these requirements.
