State Immunization Requirements & Compliance Options

 

Colorado State law requires any student enrolled for one or more credit hours in higher education to comply with the State’s immunization policy. This policy also applies to active military students, graduate students, students taking online only classes and those studying abroad.

Requirement for students born AFTER January 1, 1957*

Provide proof of having received:
Two (2) doses of combined MMR
vaccine (combined measles/
mumps/rubella vaccine)

OR

Provide proof of having received:
Two (2) doses of measles vaccine
Two (2) doses of mumps vaccine
Two (2) does of rubella vaccine

*This is a one-time requirement during a student’s first semester of attendance.

 

Requirement for students born Before January 1, 1957

See instructions and required paperwork below.

Note: If students transfer from one Auraria institution to another Auraria institution there is no need to resubmit immunization records. However, students must notify the Immunization Office of this transfer to prevent an immunization hold from being placed on their student account at the new institution.


Instructions for Students Born:

AFTER JANUARY 1, 1957 
BEFORE JANUARY 1, 1957 

Complete Step 1 of the Auraria Immunization Compliance Form and provide one of the following:

  • Attach a copy of your immunization records showing proof of two (2) doses of combined MMR vaccine OR proof of two (2) doses of measles vaccine, two (2) doses of mumps vaccine and two (2) doses of rubella vaccine, OR
  • Have your healthcare provider complete Step 2 on the Auraria Immunization Compliance Form, OR
  • Submit a copy of your blood titer test results (see option 1 below)

 


Students must ONLY complete Step 1 of the Auraria Immunization Compliance Form.

These students are exempt from the MMR requirement since it is assumed that students in the age group have been exposed to the diseases.

Can’t Find Your Shot Records? Immunization Deadlines

                                                                              Option 1: Blood Titer Individuals who cannot find their shot records, but know that they were fully vaccinated or had all three diseases, have the option to provide evidence of positive immunity by having their blood drawn for a “blood titer test” which can document positive immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. Please complete the Auraria Immunization Compliance Form and attach a copy of the results of the blood titer lab report. The Health Center at Auraria can perform blood titer testing.

Option 2: Re-Immunization Students can choose to be re-immunized by a community medical provider or by the Immunization Office located in the Health Center at Auraria (Plaza Building 149), which offers reduced cost MMR vaccinations.

 

October 1st
for new Fall/Summer semester students

March 1st
for new Spring semester students                                   

If the Immunization Office does not receive the required measles, mumps, rubella documentation by the applicable deadline above, an “immunization hold” will be placed on a student’s account reventing future registrations, until this requirement has been fulfilled.
