Please note: the failure to submit certain documents in a timely fashion may affect your tuition rate and/or your ability to register for classes.
Immunization: If you were born on or after January 1, 1957, you must submit to the Student Health Center, prior to registration, immunization records showing two vaccinations for measles, and one vaccination each for mumps and rubella.
