Students will not be allowed to register for classes in the following term if the required vaccination documents are not provided. If you do not attend classess, your immigration record will be negatively affected. Domestic students – If you fail to fulfill this requirement, you will not be allowed to check into university housing or attend classes for the following academic term.

  • Tuberculosis screening (TB) – cannot be older than 6 months prior to moving onto campus AND cannot be received outside of the United States. It is a 2 part screening- inoculation then read by a medical professional 48 hours later.
