Immunization and Vaccination Requirements

To protect the health and well-being of the campus community, students are required to have vaccination and immunization records on file with Health Services.

NOTE: Students who are taking fully online or remote classes and do not utilize in-person services, do not have to comply with these requirements.



Exemptions to the above requirements may be requested based on either religious conviction or health reasons. To complete the exemption process, complete the appropriate Health Services form and return it along with any required documentation by the deadline listed.
NOTE: Health Science students are not eligible to receive an exemption. Students enrolled in Health Science programs that have a hospital clinical component, must have the appropriate vaccinations and/or immunizations to attend clinical rotations and therefore complete these programs.

Process for Obtaining Records

  • Once your application has been processed, Health Services will begin the process of collecting the required vaccination and immunization records on file with the New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS).
    • The information collected through NYSIIS will be recorded and marked on the student's My Enrollment Checklist in WIReD.
  • If the vaccination and/or immunization records are not available on NYSIIS, the student will need to provide the appropriate documentation in order to take any in-person classes or utilize in-person services.

Submitting Documentation

All immunization and vaccination records submitted to Health Services must have an original signature or a practice stamp. Photocopied signatures and stamps are not accepted.
