Policy Statement

Any student born after 1956 who is registering for more than one class per semester must submit a statement of their immunization status to the institution where they are enrolled per Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A.14).

Students need to document the month and year they received the following immunizations:

  • Measles (Rubeola) --two doses received after age 12 months
  • Mumps --two doses received after age 12 months
  • Rubella (German Measles) --two doses received after age 12 months
  • Diphtheria/Tetanus --last vaccine within 10 years

Immunization forms are sent to all students when they are admitted to UMC. Students who have not completed an immunization statement should stop by the Student Health Office, 145F Sargeant Student Center, to obtain the proper forms. Students who do not have knowledge of their immunization status are encouraged to contact the high school they attended or their hometown health clinic, as these institutions may have the records on file.

Students are required by law to provide this immunization information within 45 days after beginning classes at UMC. Students who fail to do so cannot remain enrolled and will not be allowed to register for the following academic term until these records are in compliance with the law.

Reason for Policy

The University of Minnesota, Crookston maintains certain care standards for themselves to prevent the spread of disease. To that end, they require that all students receive key immunizations, based on Minnesota State Law.
