Vaccination Policy

Physical Examination, Immunizations and Laboratory Tests
New York State Public Health Law 2165 now requires that all persons born after January 1, 1957 must be in full compliance with State Immunization requirements. Students must show protection against measles, mumps, and rubella. The immunization documentation must be submitted within 30 days of the start of the term. If documentation is not submitted, the respective student will not be permitted to continue attending classes, will be dropped from his/her classes, and will be responsible for tuition liability. Following acceptance to a Nursing or Occupational Therapy Assistance program, a physical examination and specific laboratory tests are required. The Health Report Form must be completed by a physician or a certified health care practitioner and returned to the Admissions Office or the specific academic department.
