Required Immunizations and TB Testing
All newly enrolled or readmitted students at Rockhurst University are required to comply with the Immunization/Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Policy. Students may submit vaccination information online through our Submission Process. Please obtain copies of your immunization records demonstrating proof of vaccination for measles, rubella and mumps. Tuberculosis screening is a questionnaire that students must complete. If a student answers no to all the questions found on the questionnaire, the student is considered to have been effectively screened and no further action is needed. Each student shall attest that the information submitted on his/her TB screening questionnaire is true to the best of his/her knowledge and shall submit the signed screening test results to Rockhurst University. If a student answers yes to any of the statements found on the TB screening questionnaire, Rockhurst University requires that a TB risk assessment by a health care provider be completed within 6 months or prior to the student's enrollment for the subsequent semester.
Each student required to undergo a TB risk assessment by a health care provider shall submit appropriate written documentation of his/her TB risk assessment results, including but not limited to any skin test results, blood test results or chest x-ray results signed by an appropriate health care provider.
*Students who do not comply with these requirements will not be allowed to register for their second semester.
As a student who will be residing in any on-campus residential facility, you must comply with the current vaccination practices as recommend by the American College Health Association and the Center for Disease Control.
The Required Vaccinations include:
-Documentation of two MMR's (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) or serum screening titer verifying immunity to Rubella
The Recommended Vaccinations include:
