Ave Maria University Immunization Requirements

Ave Maria University requires that ALL students provide evidence of MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella), Hepatitis B, and Meningococcal immunization, or else submit a signed waiver declining receipt of vaccinations, after being made aware of the risks associated with these diseases. Completed vaccination usually involves a series of two shots for MMR, and three shots for Hepatitis B.

  • To submit proof of immunization, students may:
    • Have their healthcare provider complete the AMU Immunization History Form (found HERE), uploading the completed form as an attachment, or
    • Upload and attach acceptable immunization records otherwise (see below for further details on what constitutes “acceptable”).
  • To WAIVE the immunization requirement, students must complete the AMU Immunization Waiver Form, found HERE.

Immunization FAQs

What counts as an acceptable immunization record?

An acceptable immunization record should have two identifiers (i.e. patient name and date of birth), plus type, date, and outcome of each vaccine/titer administered. There is no set format for these records, but the source must be one of the following:

    • A copy of your original immunization records.
    • An immunization record issued by a clinic, physician’s office, or state health department.
    • An immunization record from another school, provided it is on official letterhead from the school.

What should I do if I have received one or more of the vaccines, but not the other(s)?

Complete the AMU Immunization Waiver Form for the vaccines you do not have documentation for, and submit it as an attachment to the Mandatory Immunization Form, along with documentation for the vaccines you have received.

Does the AMU Immunization History Form have to be completed by a healthcare provider?

If it is your sole form of documentation for the vaccines received, then yes.

What happens if I fail to submit my health forms prior to arriving on campus or enrolling in courses?

A hold will be placed on your student account preventing registration for the following term until you have completed submission of your health forms.
