Health Requirements

MMR Requirement:

Immunization to measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) is a requirement for all students who attend UNI. To comply with this requirement all students must provide records documenting proof of TWO measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccinations. Please note all the immunization dates must include month, day and year.

Students who meet the following requirements are not required to provide immunization documentation:

  • Students born before January 1, 1957
  • Students enrolled in online or off-campus courses only. Should students seek to enroll in an on-campus course, they must comply with the immunization requirements.
  • Military exemption, the student must provide a copy of their military ID or copy of their DD 214 papers.

We request that you submit your immunization records as soon as possible.  This documentation is mandatory for all new students and must be on file and in compliance by the tenth day of the first term enrolled at UNI.  If students are not in compliance, a $30 late fee will be assessed and a hold will be placed on the students' accounts preventing them from registering for the following semester. If you have questions regarding these requirements call 319-273-2009 and press option #1.
