UND Student Health Service Requirements

Required Immunizations

The North Dakota University System policy requires all students to be vaccinated with 2 doses of measles, mumps, and rubella. All newly admitted students ages 21 and younger must provide documentation of a meningitis vaccination given after the 16th birthday. Students are also required to complete the TB (Tuberculosis) Screening Form.

Documentation must be provided by August 1st for Fall Semester, January 1st for Spring Semester, and May 1st for Summer Semester. Failure to comply with the immunization requirements will result in a hold on your account restricting you from registering for the following semester.

Immunization documentation may be submitted via the following options:

Mandatory Immunization and TB screening Forms/Instructions. This form may be printed off, filled out and returned with the appropriate immunization documentation to Student Health Services, 100 McCannel Hall, Stop 9038, Grand Forks, ND  58202 or faxed to 701-777-4835.

OR:

If you have claimed your UND account, you may access our patient portal at myhealth.und.edu to enter your immunizations and upload immunization information electronically.  (Use your UND user name and password to log in)
