Immunization Requirements

Which Immunizations are Needed?

All students who attend an on campus location are required to provide proof of immunization unless otherwise exempt or born on or before January 1, 1957.
Proof of the following immunizations is required by law:
  • Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis - 1 dose (within the past 10 years*)
  • Measles (Rubeola) - 2 doses
  • Mumps - 2 doses
  • Rubella (German Measles) - 2 doses
  • Meningococcal - 1 dose
*International students are required by law to have three (3) inoculations.

Document Submittal Process

To submit your immunization records, click on the link provided below. This will guide you through the process of submitting your request and/or documentation. If you are unable to submit your records at this time, you may print the form and, upon completion, deliver it in-person to either DePaul Central location.
Please note: By law, DePaul must prevent you from registering in subsequent terms if you fail to submit documentation verifying that you meet the immunization requirements. It is recommended that you keep a copy of the documentation submitted, as DePaul does not re-release this information. A copy of your submission can be printed once you reach the confirmation page.

Are There Alternatives to Vaccination?

If you were vaccinated but are unable to provide immunization records, or if you were exposed to one or more of the above diseases and believe that you now have immunity, a positive titer result for Measles, Mumps and/or Rubella is acceptable as proof of immunization.
A titer test is a blood test that can determine whether you have enough antibodies in your system to be considered “sufficiently immune” to a disease. A copy of the lab report must be submitted to prove immunity. If lab report results are equivocal or negative, you are not immune. You should visit your physician to receive additional vaccination(s) to become sufficiently immune. The additional vaccination and lab results must be submitted to complete the immunization requirements.
