All Auraria students are required to comply with the Immunization policy.
This includes students who are active military duty and studying abroad.
Students born after January 1, 1957 must provide documented proof that they have received two rubeola (measles), one rubella (German measles) and two mumps vaccinations OR two combination MMR (measles, mumps and rubella.)*
Students born before January 1, 1957 do not need to provide documented proof that they have received one rubeola (measles), one rubella (German measles) and one mumps vaccination OR one combination MMR (measles, mumps and rubella),* but must sign and submit the Meningococcal Disease Information Sheet acknowledging that they have received this critical information, as well as the completed TB Risk Questionnaire.
*An alternative option for individuals who have had all three diseases or cannot provide an immunization record is to provide written evidence of positive laboratory tests (known as a blood titer test for immunity). Test results must reflect positive immunity to measles, mumps and rubella and if results prove less than positive you must provide evidence of re-immunization.
Medical, Religious and personal exemptions are allowed by law. Students who submit exemptions are subject to the prevailing regulations governing quarantines in case of outbreaks and university policies related forfeiture of tuition and fees.

a. All new students are required to complete a TB risk questionnaire. These will be reviewed by the medical staff at the Health Center at Auraria. PPD (Tuberculosis) Testing is available at the Immunization office for $10.00. PPD testing is done on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
b. Participation in academic programs such as Teacher Education or Nursing may require students to be tested for Latent Tuberculosis. This test (PPD) requires students to report for test placement on their forearm and to return in 48 hours to have a medical professional read and record the result of the test.
Once this is completed the student will receive documentation which can be submitted to their program.
State Law requires all post-secondary education institutions to provide information regarding Meningococcal Disease to students. There is scientific evidence that college students living in dormitory facilities (communal environments) or congregate settings are at a higher risk of contracting this serious disease. There is an immunization available that can prevent against four types of Meningococcal disease. Although the State requirement is only to inform students about Meningococcal disease and the associated vaccine, the Health Center at Auraria highly recommends students at high risk consider being immunized against this disease. This immunization is available at the Auraria Immunization office or you may contact your private physician for more information. All students must sign and submit the meningococcal disease information sheet acknowledging that they have received this critical information
