Health Insurance & Immunization
Senate Bill No. 2291, signed into law on July 5, 2013 as P.L.2013, c.78, eliminated the State’s statutory requirement that all full-time students at public and private institutions of higher education in New Jersey have health insurance coverage.
Immunization Requirement For All Students Who Access Campus
New Jersey State Law (NJAC 8:57-6.1 to 6.13) requires all college students (including graduate school) to submit evidence of vaccination to Measles (Rubeola), Mumps (Parotitis), and German Measles (Rubella), and Hepatitis B.* To be in compliance with the immunization regulations, students have three (3) options:
1. Have your physician or clinic complete the immunization information is Section A documenting the following immunizations; Measles (2 doses), Mumps and Rubella (1 dose each), Hepatitis B (3 doses)* or return a photocopy of your previously completed immunization records. If Section A is not completed, and previous records are not supplied:
2. Claim an application exemption in Section B (side 2).
3. If unable to claim an exemption, you must be immunized for Measles (2 doses), Mumps and Rubella (1 dose each), and have a physician/clinic complete Section A.
*Required for all hybrid students or students who physcially access the campus.
Hybrid students should submit the Student Health Immunization Record to the Office of the Registrar–Jeanette Carrillo firstname.lastname@example.org before the first day of class. Hybrid students who have not completed the required form will be dismissed from the seminary.
