The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Department of Public Health requires all students to provide documentation of immunizations, recent physical exam (within the past 12 months), and completed health forms. The immunization requirements are mandated by Massachusetts regulation 105 CMR 220.000. The regulation applies to all full-time undergraduate and graduate students and students in a health services field (patient contact)..
Health forms must be completed by you and your health care provider and returned to Health Services by August 1 for all accepted students who will be starting classes in the fall and by January 1 for all accepted students who will be starting classes in the spring. Students must be compliant with all health requirements PRIOR to entrance, or they may not be permitted to move into residence halls or begin classes.
New Students Enrollment Requirements
New enrolled students are required to complete the following forms:
Contact your healthcare provider for your immunization records and a recent physical exam. You may also try to contact schools and colleges or other post-secondary institutions you attended for your immunization records. Some employers may have this information, as well. Most states and some cities have centralized registries of vaccinations. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has a listing of these registry contacts.
