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 - 3 doses (at least 1 tdap in lifetime, last dose within past 10 years)
  • Measles - 2 doses (at least 28 days apart, after first birthday. Neither dose can be prior to 1968.)
  • Mumps - 2 doses (at least 28 days apart, after first birthday. Neither dose can be prior to 1968.)
  • Rubella - 2 doses (at least 28 days apart, after first birthday. Neither dose can be prior to 1968.)
  • Meningococcal - 1 dose (if under the age of 22, taken on or after 16th birthday)

Immunization Submittal Process

To view your immunization status and submit documents, log in to Campus Connect.

  • Current Students: Student Resources > Immunization Status
  • Admitted Students: Next Steps > Immunization Status

If you do not have a copy of your records, you may use the DePaul University Immunization Form to have your physician or health care provider complete and sign. Scan or take a photo of the completed form and login to the Campus Connect page and submit the form through the navigation path above.

Learn more about the immunization submission process.

Please note:
  • By law, DePaul University must prevent you from registering in subsequent terms if you fail to submit documentation verifying that you meet the immunization requirements.
  • All records must be in English or be accompanied by a certified translation.
  • DePaul does not re-release immunization information. A copy of your immunization status page can be printed through Campus Connect.

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.
