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.
The immunization requirement is in place to ensure the health and safety of all constituents on the Auraria campus and the University is required by State law to enforce this requirement in the interest of public health.
Students must comply with the State of Colorado’s Immunization Policy requirements for higher education by submitting documentation of their previous immunizations, specifically MMR (measles, mumps and rubella.) This documentation must be submitted during the first semester of attendance by the immunization deadline. The summer/fall deadline is October 1 and the spring deadline is March 1.
Students who do not comply with this requirement will not be able to eligible to register for future semesters. Non-compliant students will have an immunization “hold” put on their account if they have not submitted their immunization documentation by the published deadline during their first semester of attendance.
