Immunization Requirements

The Illinois Department of Public Health requires that a student entering a post-secondary institution submit documented proof of immunity against the following diseases: measles (two doses at least 30 days apart), mumps, rubella, tetanus, and diphtheria if you meet all of the following conditions:

  • You live in on-campus housing;
  • You are registered for more than 5 credit hours (total over the 4- and 8-week sessions);
  • You were born on or after January 1, 1957.

The required immunization form needs to be filled out and submitted to the Office of Medical Immunization Records.  If you have specific questions, contact the Office of Medical Immunization Records at (312) 413-0464.

A student who meets these conditions, who is not properly immunized, and has not submitted a written statement of medical or religious exemption is required to undergo immunization within the first term of enrollment. Failure to provide the required proof of immunity shall prevent a student from enrolling in a subsequent term. In order to enroll for more than five credit hours in a subsequent term, a student will have to submit the required proof of immunity prior to registering for courses.
