Immunization Requirement

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

 Proof of two doses of measles, two doses of mumps and two dose of rubella

or

two MMR vaccinations (combined measles, mumps and 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 exception 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 account at the new institution.

 

 

Immunization Deadlines

  October 1st for new Fall/Summer students

  March 1st for new Spring 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 preventing future registrations, until this requirement has been fulfilled.

 

 

Instructions for Students Born After January 1, 1957

Complete step 1 of the Auraria Immunization Compliance Form and attach one of the following:

  • Copy of your immunization records designating two doses of measles, two doses of mumps and two doses of rubella vaccine , OR 2 MMR vaccinations, OR
  • Have your healthcare provider complete section 2 on the compliance form, OR
  • Submit your blood titer test results (see below)

 

Instructions for Students Born Before January 1, 1957

Are exempt from the MMR requirement since it is assumed that students in the age group have been exposed to the diseases. However, students must complete and submit step 1 of the Auraria Immunization Compliance form to the Auraria Immunization Office located in the Plaza Building, suite 149.

  

Can’t Find Your Shot Records?

Option 1: 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. The Immunization Office at the Health Center at Auraria (Plaza Building 149) offers convenient, reduced-cost blood titer tests. Please complete the Auraria Immunization Compliance Form and attach a copy of the results of the blood titer lab report.

Option 2: 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.
