Oklahoma state law requires that all first-time students who attend Oklahoma colleges and universities provide proof of immunization for certain diseases. If you cannot verify your immunizations, you need to be re-immunized. Medical, religious, and moral exemptions are allowed by law, and such requests must be made in writing using the Northeastern State University Certificate of Exemption form. The requirement does not apply to students enrolled in courses in which you are not required to attend class on campus.
All required vaccines are available at Student Health Services for a fee. To Schedule an appointment, please call 918-444-2126
*Oklahoma Law required that all new students living in campus housing be provided information regarding meningococcal disease and the availability of a vaccine that may prevent meningitis. This information is sent from NSU Housing. As part of the housing contract, you (or your parent in the case of a minor) attest that you have either received the vaccine or chosen not to be immunized against meningitis by completing and signing the Certification of Meningococcal Compliance. Contact Housing for more information.
**See Tuberculosis Screening for International Students Policy Acceptable documentation of proof of immunizations includes any of the following:
Acceptable forms considered for a medical exemption include a letter from the student’s physician specifying the immunization that is contraindicated and the reason, or a signed and completed NSU Certificate of Exemption form.
If you wish to decline vaccines based on religious or moral beliefs, you must read, agree to, and sign the Certificate of Exemption form attesting to your beliefs and acknowledging their risks.
