New Students and Required Vaccines
Welcome to the North Park community! As you and your family prepare for your transition to our campus, here are a few things to take note of:
All new and transfer students must show proof of three to four types of immunizations (or vaccines) prior to finalizing registration for classes, including the following:
- Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine — at least three doses, one dose within the last 10 years
- Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine — at least two doses, laboratory (serologic) evidence of immunity is acceptable in place of immunization records
- Meningococcal conjugate vaccine — only for students younger than 22 years of age, must show proof of at least one does on or after 16 years of age
- COVID-19 vaccine — full immunization per manufacturer specifications
All international students and students who have studied abroad to high-risk countries are required to get tuberculosis screening. Provide documentation of a PPD (Mantoux skin test) within the past year. Students with a history of positive PPD result or history of BCG vaccine should attach a copy of the Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) results or provide a copy of your chest x-ray results or completed tuberculosis treatment.

This Immunization Record Form must be completed prior to registering for classes.
If you don’t already have them, learn how to find your immunization records.
If you are participating on one of North Park University’s intercollegiate athletic teams, you must also complete the pre-participation packet.

Please note that healthcare records are confidential and cannot be reviewed by or released to anyone, including parents or other family members, without the express written consent of the student. This includes visits and corresponding records from Health and Counseling Support Services at North Park.
Students and their families are encouraged to discuss this privacy, along with the Family Educational Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) restrictions before the beginning of the academic year.
Authorization of Treatment for Minors
All active North Park University students who are minors (less than 18 years of age) must have a parent or guardian sign an Authorization for Minors form that allows authorization of their treatment at Health Services and provides a means to contact the parent or guardian in case of a medical emergency or if certain medical treatments are needed.
Please return the signed form to Health Services at 3317 West Foster Avenue or fax the form to 773-634-4060.
