The Immunization Policy at the University of Colorado
Denver is intended to protect the campus community from illness and disease.
All CU Denver students are required to comply with the
Immunization Policy. This includes students who are on active military
duty and studying abroad.
- For assistance call
born after January 1, 1957 must provide documented proof that they have
received two rubeola (measles), two rubella (German measles) and two mumps
vaccinations OR two combination MMR (measles, mumps and rubella.)*
Students born before January 1, 1957 do not need
to provide documented proof that they have received one rubeola (measles), one
rubella (German measles) and one mumps vaccination OR one combination MMR
(measles, mumps and rubella),* but must sign and submit the Meningococcal
Disease Information Sheet acknowledging that they have received this critical
information, as well as the completed TB Risk Questionnaire.
*An alternative option for individuals who have had all three diseases or
cannot provide an immunization record is to provide written evidence of
positive laboratory tests (known as a blood titer test for immunity). Test
results must reflect positive immunity to measles, mumps and rubella and if
results prove less than positive you must provide evidence of re-immunization.
Medical, Religious and personal exemptions are allowed by law. Students
who submit exemptions are subject to the prevailing regulations governing
quarantines in case of outbreaks and university policies related forfeiture of
tuition and fees.
Students can obtain immunizations from their community
medical provider or from the Health Center at Auraria's Immunization Office.
Community prices for MMR vaccine and blood titer tests for immunity may vary widely
from one office to the next.
