Current Students

What immunizations do I need?
DePaul University's immunization requirements can be found on the Requirements Page.

How long does it take for my hold to be removed?
If you bring complete records to DePaul Central in person, your hold can be removed on the spot. All other records are processed in 24 business hours or less.

I faxed my immunization records to DePaul. How do I know if they have been received?
You may check your immunization grid in Campus Connect under the For Students tab for any updates to your immunization status. If you have submitted your records and your grid is has not been updated after 24 business hours, please contact DePaul Central.

How do I locate my immunization records?
You may try contacting your previous health care providers or schools to locate your records.

What if I can't find them?
If you cannot locate your records, a blood titer test can show your immunity to Measles, Mumps, or Rubella. Contact your health care provider for further information about blood titer tests. You will need to provide our office with a copy of the lab reports, if they are positive. If you cannot locate a record of your current Tetanus/Diphtheria vaccination, you will need to receive a new inoculation.

I don't have a health care provider. Where can I go to get my shots?
Students without a health care provider may visit Sage Medical Group, affiliated with DePaul University and located at: 1150 West Fullerton Avenue. They can be reached at (773) 549-7757.

What if I can't get my vaccinations before I need to register?
If you are unable to receive your vaccinations before needing to enroll in classes, please contact DePaul Central to discuss your options.

I attended DePaul as an undergraduate student. Do I need to provide my immunization records again for graduate school?
DePaul did not officially begin recording students' immunization records until Winter of 2006. Students who were admitted prior to the Winter 2006 term and maintained continuous enrollment are not required to have immunization records on file. Those students with gaps in enrollment, students in campus housing or students that have been readmitted since this time must submit their immunization records. If you have any questions about these requirements, please contact DePaul Central.

I just received an email saying my immunization status is incomplete, but I am supposed to be exempt. What should I do?
Distance Learning and Less Than Half Time exemptions expire at the end of each term. If you have maintained your Distance Learning or Less Than Half Time status, these exemptions will automatically be replaced before registration with no action required on your part. For further questions about your exemption status, please contact DePaul Central.

Online Students

As an Online Student, do I need to submit Immunization records?
Distance Learning students are exempt from the immunization requirement. If a student begins taking courses on one of DePaul's campuses, the student will need to submit proof of immunization.

You may try contacting your child’s previous health care providers or schools to attempt to locate your child’s records. Due to privacy laws, your child may have to request their own records.

Faculty/Staff

I need to add/drop a student from a class, but they have an immunization hold. What should I do?
