Mandatory Immunizations for Undergraduates

  •  Seattle University requires all students, staff and faculty enrolled in undergraduate courses to provide documentation that they have had two doses of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), a Tetanus booster (Td or Tdap) in the last 10 years, and 3 doses of the Hepatitis B series.

    In addition to the above immunizations, it is strongly recommended that you complete the usual childhood vaccine series and consider the Meningococcal vaccine. Immunization experts have issued a new vaccination recommendation for meningococcal disease stating that all first-year students living in residence halls should be immunized against meningococcal disease, a rare, but potentially fatal, bacterial infection commonly referred to as meningitis.

    Seattle University, however, at this time does not require the vaccine. The Student Health Center, like other primary care clinics, offers all of the requied vaccines.

    Please enter your mandatory immunization records online at SU Online Student Health. Once you enter your records please send us a hard copy for verification. We will accept mailed copies, scanned and emailed copies or faxed copies of official immunization records from your primary care health provider's office, official records you may retain or records from your high school. Many of you may be unaware that your high school already has this information and is an excellent resource for obtaining these records. Please make sure that your name AND student ID number are on any record submitted to us.
