Non-Syracuse University students are required to provide proof of successful measles vaccination (rubella, mumps, and rubeola). We cannot register students without such evidence. Please have the Immunization form from the Acceptance Materials Packet completely filled out and returned to us. Non-SU students should take the form to their campus health center or family doctor. SU students' immunization forms should already be on file at the campus Health Center.
This is a New York State law that applies to all undergraduate and graduate students born on or after January 1, 1957.
Vaccines must have been administered after twelve months of age. If you were vaccinated shortly before your first birthday, that vaccination is not considered a valid immunization, and you are still at risk to contact rubella, rubella, and mumps. If the Health Service is not satisfied you are immunized, you are placed on "Health Hold" which prevents your registration either on campus or abroad.
The immunization regulations apply to all students attending a Syracuse University program abroad, regardless of the state where you reside, or the location of your home campus.

There are no immunization requirements for travel between the United States and Western Europe. However, travel to other parts of the world may require additional precautions. You should contact your local county health department, physician, or student health service for information.
