The immunization requirement should be completed prior to the Spring 2023 semester. Undergraduate and Graduate students who do not submit their immunization records by March 20, 2023 will receive a hold on their Fall registration until the requirement is completed.

Where can I receive the required immunizations?

Obtain the vaccination from your healthcare provider or your local public health agency.
