Students born on or after January 1, 1957 who wish to register for more than 5 credits in any single semester are required to show proof of immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella diseases before registering. All students regardless of age, registering for more than 5 credits must comply with the New York State Immunization Meningococcal Law.
Proof of immunization must be submitted to the Health Services Office in the Student Center prior to working with a counselor and prior to registering for classes. If you have already submitted this information during a previous semester and were cleared to register at that time, you do not have to submit your immunization record again.

Allied Health Students:
Upon admission to programs within the Health Sciences Curriculums that require clinical rotations to various hospitals, students will need to submit documentation of the results of a physical examination, laboratory tests, and specific vaccinations to Health Services. The nurses will review and provide clearances to those students who have met the criteria as set forth by the New York State Department of Health for Health Care Personnel and Clinical Affiliates. Each program (curriculum) requires the physical exam process be done at specific times.
