Student Health Services
No incoming student born after 1956 shall be registered for classes at the Missouri University of Science and Technology without documented proof of two doses of live measles vaccine. Students matriculating only in off-campus or continuing education/extension courses are excluded.
The incoming student shall present acceptable documentation of immunization before registration to the Missouri University of Science and Technology is complete. Acceptable documentation shall be defined by the campus and may include a measles immunization record signed by a physician, or a health record from a high school or a branch of the military.
Students not in compliance with this policy will be notified of the need to provide acceptable documentation in order to register for the following semester. In addition, a hold will be placed on the records of students not in compliance.
Exemptions from immunization are permitted for medical, religious or philosophical reasons. Students who exempt themselves from immunization for religious or philosophical reasons must sign the Missouri University of Science and Technology measles/rubella form (parents must sign for persons under the age of 18). For medical exemptions, the Missouri University of Science and Technology measles/rubella form must be completed and signed by a physician. This form will be on file in the student health clinic or other office designated by the Chancellor. For their own protection, students who have an exemption may be required to leave campus in case of a measles or rubella outbreak.
