How to Submit Your Immunization Records

Required Immunizations for New UMass Students

Massachusetts law requires that college students have certain immunizations before coming to school and submit proof of completion. The required vaccines are:

  • MMR (measles, mumps and rubella)
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis)
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis vaccine

Compliance with the immunization requirements set forth by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is mandatory for UMass students of all ages.

Failure to submit your complete records by the deadline will result in a hold being placed on your student account. An account hold will prevent you from registering for, adding, or dropping classes until we have your complete records.

Missing vaccines or records?

  • You can self-schedule a UHS appointment online to receive vaccines you are missing, and/or a titer test (blood test) to determine what vaccines you need.
  • Login to the UMass Patient Portal and go to UHS Nursing & Specialty Care > Appointments (calendar icon). Select Required Immunization Appointment to schedule.
