Required Immunizations

The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education Policy 506.1 requires students to provide:

  1. Proof of two MMR immunizations (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) before being accepted into North Dakota colleges. A titer for MMR immunity can also be used for this requirement.
  2. All students ages 21 and younger must provide documentation of vaccination against Meningococcal Disease (Meningitis) given after the age 16.
  • NOTE: Meningococcal B is a separate meningitis vaccination. It DOES NOT meet the NDUS requirement.

Tuberculosis screening is required of new international students from all countries classified by United States health officials as high burden for tuberculosis. Two step testing or a chest x-ray indicating no active disease must be done after entry to the United States.

These records can be obtained from your clinic, county health department or your home state immunizations database.

If you do not provide these to Student Health Service, your records will be placed on hold and you will be unable to register for classes. You can log onto the CampusConnection portal to see if your records are on hold. Other departments on campus can also put your records on hold.
