All undergraduate students must have completed their immunizations and show documented proof of such to be allowed to register for classes. Failure to provide these records will result in a hold on all classes. For instructions on how to upload your immunization information, go to MyCougar Health Student Portal. You can also view step-by-step instructions with screen shots.
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR); two vaccines required in a lifetime, unless born prior to 1957, in which case natural immunity is assumed and no documentation is necessary.
