New York State Public Health Laws §2165 and §2167 requires all students enrolled for at least six (6) semester hours or equivalent per semester, or at least four (4) semester hours per quarter to provide written proof of immunization against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella, and a Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccination Response. All F1 and J1 visa students arriving within the last five years from the countries listed on THE STUDENT TUBERCULOSIS TESTING FORM below must submit proof of Tuberculosis (TB) testing. This testing must be done within the last six months before classes start.
The Office of Wellness Services oversees immunization compliance and maintains all of the school’s immunization records. Students must submit a completed copy of NYIT's Student Immunization Form to the Office of Wellness Services. We can provide assistance with and information about the student accident and health insurance plans and serve as a liaison with NYIT’s New York College of Osteopathic Medicine’s health centers and community health services in order to complete this. Students will not be permitted to register for classes or attend classes without such written proof and until the Office of Wellness Services has cleared them.
You may provide any health records, which demonstrate proof of immunity from:
- Prior Schools (High School or College)
- Local Health Department
A student may go to the Department of Health in the county they reside, or the county where the college resides to be immunized. In Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens, please check the New York City Immunization Walk-In Clinic Website.
