Illinois state law and University policy require that all traditional students who are newly enrolled at Concordia University Chicago provide written evidence of current immune status or evidence of exemption from this requirement with respect to the following communicable diseases:

  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR): two vaccinations after your first birthday (not required if you were born before January 1, 1957)
  • Meningitis: one vaccination after 16th birthday (for students 22 years and younger)

  • TB Testing -Required for international students ONLY within the last 12 months. Must upload chest x-ray if TB Skin test is failed
  • 2 primary series Tetanus for International students ONLY. Toxoid vaccine (TT) in not acceptable.

Students not in compliance with Illinois immunization law 30 days after the first day of classes will receive a $75 non-compliance charge each semester to their student accounts. Students are not required to have Hepatitis B vaccine (www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/hepb/default.htm) but we strongly advise you to obtain information about these vaccines and make an informed decision as to whether or not these vaccines are right for you. Please be aware of these requirements and consult with your physician about any additional immunizations that you may require. 

International students and/or non-U.S. Citizens: Vaccines are required as noted. Additionally, these students are required to have a Tuberculin (TB) skin test or blood test for TB with a negative result within the 12 months preceding the first day of classes (chest x-ray required if test is positive). The TB skin test or blood test for TB must be performed in a United States facility.  

Evidence of immunization should be provided no later than the beginning of the student’s first term of enrollment at CUC. Failure to comply with the state law and University requirements before the end of the first term may result in the placing of encumbrances on the student’s record, which will prevent further enrollment.
