Chapter 2 - Students

2.20.1 Immunization Policy

Reference: Minnesota Law (MS135A.14)
Minnesota Law (MS135A.14) requires that all students born after 1956 or who graduated from a Minnesota High School prior to 1997 and enrolled in a public or private post secondary school in Minnesota must be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella. The student will provide proof of immunization by completing the Immunization Record for Students Attending Post Secondary Schools form prior to registering for classes. This form can be obtained from the Student Service Office.


  1. This form need not be completed by students who are enrolled for only one class during the full academic semester or for extension, correspondence or Internet courses only.
  2. Students may also be exempt for medical or conscience reasons.
  3. Transfer students from a different Minnesota college if transcripts or other information from the previous school indicate that the student has met immunization requirements.
