Proof of Immunity Requirements
Within 30 days of your first class, you must submit the documents listed below to the Office of Undergraduate Admission or the Graduate Center. If you do not submit the required information, you will be excluded from classes and residence halls and prohibited from further registration at NYU School of Engineering.
Download these 2 required forms, complete, and submit them within 30 days of your first class (information about where to submit each form is located on the form itself):
- Student Immunization Record (required) to be complete by your personal physician or previous school, which should have your immunization records
- Meningitis Vaccination Response (required)
Proof of immunity is as follows:
- Measles (Rubeola): Two dates of immunization; both dates must be on or after your first birthday. Both dates must be at least 28 days apart. A positive measles titer (blood test) or a disease statement from the diagnosing physician also constitutes valid proof of immunity.
- Mumps: One date of immunization; the date must be on or after your first birthday. A positive mumps titer (blood test) or a disease statement from the diagnosing physician also constitutes valid proof of immunity.
- Rubella (German measles): One date of immunization; the date must be on or after your first birthday. A positive rubella titer (blood test) is also an acceptable proof of immunity in lieu of an immunization date.
Where To Get Your Immunization Shots
If you have not had shots, please see this list of local, free immunization clinics. NYU School of Engineering has no affiliation with any of these centers. You are responsible for selecting a center you feel comfortable with.
Medical exemptions can be demonstrated by having a licensed physician or nurse practitioner certify in writing that one or more of the required immunizations may be detrimental to the student's health or is otherwise medically contraindicated. The requirements will then be waived until such immunization is determined no longer detrimental or otherwise medically contraindicated. Students who have temporary medical exemptions will be kept on a separate listing and will be notified in writing of need to submit immunization records after the temporary medical exemption date.
Religious exemptions can be demonstrated by submitting a written and signed statement from the student, or if the student is a minor, from their parents or guardians, that they hold sincere and genuine religious beliefs which prohibit immunization. This statement must be detailed enough to prove to the Institute that the beliefs are religious, not philosophical, and sincerely and genuinely held.
