SUBJECT: 500s: Student affairs EFFECTIVE: October 12, 2016
Section: 506.1 Immunization

  1. Documentation of immunity under subsection 1 in SBHE Policy 506.1 means: (a) evidence of two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine no less than 28 days apart from a licensed provider or authorized representative of a state or local health department; (b) proof of a positive serologic test for measles, mumps, and rubella; or (c) proof of date of birth prior to 1957.

  2. Documentation of immunity under subsection 2 in SBHE Policy 506.1 means evidence of at least one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine at age 16 or older.

  3. Each institution shall develop and implement procedures to insure that all students subject to this policy provide the required documentation of immunity. Campus procedures will stipulate that non-exempt students will supply required proof of immunization prior to permitting students to register for a subsequent term or earlier. The procedures shall include but are not limited to an intensive education effort to inform students of the policy and the need for immunization, the provision of access to immunization through clinics, the campus health service, or the county health office, and the development of a tracking system to facilitate the identification of students who are immunized and those who are not.

  4. Any individual who has been exempted from the immunization requirements may be required to stay off campus, including exclusion from campus activities, in the event of an outbreak of a communicable disease until the danger is over.
