Immunization Requirements

New York State Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167 and/or New York University require that all students (graduate, undergraduate, transfers, and returning students who, to date, have not complied) taking six or more credits in a degree-granting institution must provide proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella and acknowledge receipt of information regarding meningococcal disease or provide proof of meningococcal vaccine.

If you are not in full compliance, New York State requires that the University exclude you from attending classes 30 days after the first day of class for New York State residents and 45 days after the first day of class for out-of-state and international students.

Failure to comply with the requirement will result in the following:

  • Your being de-enrolled (dropped) from and unable to attend classes
  • If you are de-enrolled, you will not be eligible to receive a refund of any portion of your tuition
  • If you live on campus, you will be required to vacate your residence hall
  • You will be prevented from entering campus buildings
  • Your student ID card will be deactivated

You are exempt from immunization requirements if any of the following apply:

  • If you are taking less than six credits
  • If you are only taking online courses and you do not come to campus

Should you enroll for more than six credits or change to an on-site program, you will be required to comply.
