Immunization to measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) is a requirement for all UNI students. 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' account preventing them from registering for the following semester.
The Student Health Clinic accesses IRIS, the Iowa Immunization Registry Information System for gathering MMR/Meningitis information students who are Iowa residents. If a student is not from the state of Iowa we are not able to access their immunization record.
Students will need to provide a copy of their immunization records documenting proof of TWO MMR vaccinations, including month, day and year. You can obtain your immunization records from:
- Your family doctor's office.
- High school or other colleges you may have attended.
- Public health records or military records. If you have served in the military, a photocopy of your military ID or your DD214 is all that is needed.
A photocopy of your documentation is required and can be submitted one of the following ways:
- Fax: 319-273-7030
For medical or religious exemption from the University of Northern Iowa immunization requirements please refer to the Iowa Department of Public Health Immunization Requirements webpage.
We also collect information on vaccinations for meningococcal disease. We strongly recommend that students receive the meningococcal vaccine. You can visit the CDC’s website, www.cdc.gov, for more information about the vaccine.
If a student chooses not to receive the meningococcal vaccine, please complete and sign the UNI Health Requirements Information Form and send along with a copy of the student’s immunization record.
Please mail or fax the documentation to:
UNI Student Health Clinic
Attn: Immunization Office
Cedar Falls, IA 50614-0221
If you would like additional information regarding either vaccine, please feel free to contact the UNI Student Health Clinic at (319) 273-2009 and/or your personal physician.
