The University of Kansas requires the following immunizations and/or screenings of its student body:

  • MMR: All newly enrolled or re-enrolled students born on or after January 1, 1957 must show proof of TWO vaccinations for Measles, Mumps and Rubella. History of the disease, unless accompanied by positive titer, is not acceptable.
  • MENINGITIS: All students living in university owned group housing are required to be vaccinated for meningitis or to sign a waiver indicating that they refuse to receive the vaccine.
  • TUBERCULOSIS: All newly enrolled or re-enrolled international students are required to be screened for tuberculosis by Student Health Services upon arrival on campus and prior to enrollment.

Failure to comply with the requirements described above will result in an enrollment hold. For more information, please visit our Immunization Compliance page.
