Important Registration Requirement

In order to quickly meet with your academic advisor and to register for classes, you must first provide the Health and Wellness Center with proof of receiving 2 MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) immunizations. You must also provide us with proof of a meningitis immunization within the last five (5) years, or sign a meningitis response form (Meningitis Response and Information Form). Please be advised that resident students must have the meningitis immunization. 

You can obtain proof of these immunizations in several ways:

  • Your pediatrician or healthcare provider
  • A former high school or college
  • Veterans can get proof through the VA

If for some reason you cannot get a copy, contact your healthcare provider or make an appointment at the Health and Wellness Center. Blood work, called titers, will be drawn in order to determine immunity.

We accept your immunizations on our own immunization form (Immunization Form), your healthcare provider's form or on a school's form. Please make sure all documents are legible, signed and stamped by the healthcare provider, include your name and date of birth and RAM number (if known).  

Resident students will not receive keys to their dorm and athletes will not be allowed to practice until a complete Health Record is submitted.

You can find additional forms in the Forms section. Also check the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information regarding MMRs and how to submit paperwork.
