Policy

[horizontal rule]

All ASU students must document proof of measles (rubeola) immunity. Proof of immunity requires one of the following:

  1. written proof of two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) or rubeola vaccinations, at least one of which must have been given after 12/31/1979

    or

  2. a blood test showing immunity

    or

  3. date of birth prior to 1957.

Students are required to submit proof of immunity to ASU Health Services for verification before registering for classes. Students who do not provide proof of immunity will not be permitted to live in any ASU residence hall or to attend classes on any ASU campus.

ASU strongly recommends that students also be immunized against mumps, tetanus, hepatitis B, diphtheria, and meningitis. Special populations may need other vaccines.
