Immunization Requirements

All students need to provide evidence of certain immunizations once they are admitted to the university. This is to protect you from serious illness and also to protect our community. It is the student's responsibility to provide accurate immunization dates to achieve compliance. These dates will become a part of your official medical record.

What’s Required?

MN law requires all students born after 1956 be immunized against certain diseases, allowing for certain specified exemptions. Newly admitted students will be asked to submit the following immunization dates before they are given a Prep Date to register for classes.

  • Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td) date must be within past 10 years. If you had Tdap, dates must be July 2005 or later.
  • Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR) must report 2 doses after age 12 months or provide titre results.

How do I report it?

Students report their Td (or Tdap) and MMR dates online by logging into theROCK. Find the Academics tab, go to Electronic Signatures, under Traditional Undergraduate Students, click on New Incoming Students.

Students will not be able to submit the form unless the correct dates are entered.

What’s Recommended?

  • Meningitis (strongly advised once during the first 2 years of college; booster recommended if initial vaccine was given before age 16)
  • Hepatitis A (2 dose series recommended for people with increased risk and others who wish to obtain immunity and for international travelers)

  • Varicella (2 doses given one month apart if no history of having chicken pox)
