In accordance with Indiana Code 20-12-71, "Immunization Requirements at the Postsecondary Level," all students who attend Indiana University-Northwest for their first major semester during or after First Semester 1995-96 must provide immunization information to the Office of the Registrar. One of the main objectives of this state law is to enable the University to provide a safer and healthier environment for students.
The law stipulates that "if a student fails to comply . . . by the beginning of the student's second academic term, the postsecondary institution shall prohibit the student from matriculating in the campus of the postsecondary institution, where applicable, until the requirements are met." Therefore, students who do not provide the required immunization data will be prevented from registering for the second semester or session following their matriculation semester.
In order to be in full compliance with this state requirement, all students must:
- Provide dates of immunizations for the following diseases: measles/rubella (requires two immunizations), rubella/german measles, mumps, tetanus and diphtheria (tetanus and diphtheria booster within the last 10 years) or a physician’s written statement of immunity due to having had the infection, or a statement of contraindication to a vaccine.
- Provide a signature that indicates information regarding the risks associated with meningococcal disease and the benefits of vaccination have been reviewed.
- All international students must provide documentation of TB testing in the United States. Send medical documentation, including your student ID number, to Dunes Medical Building, Indiana University Northwest, Gary, IN 46408. Testing may be scheduled at the I.U.N. Health and Wellness Clinic once you arrive on campus. The I.U.N. Health and Wellness Clinic reports TB results to the Office of the Registrar within 2-3 weeks. Please contact their office for specific testing information. The I.U.N. Health and Wellness Clinic can be reached by phone at (219) 980-7250.
