Long Island University (LIU) is dedicated to ensuring the overall health and wellness of our campus community. Therefore, compliance with New York State Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167 is strictly enforced. Accordingly, all students born on or after Jan. 1, 1957, who are enrolled for at least six (6) semester hours or equivalent per semester must provide written proof of 2 doses of measles, 1 dose of mumps, and 1 dose of rubella, also referred to as MMR. Additionally, LIU shall distribute information about meningococcal disease to all students and maintain a signed record documenting receipt of this information, as well as proof or waiver of vaccination.
Students must submit complete documentation for NYSPHL §§ 2165 and 2167 using the LIU MMR/Meningitis form prior to or upon registering for classes.
All students who register on or after the first day of classes without satisfying these requirements will have a H02/H09 block placed on their accounts, preventing any additional enrollment activity until compliant immunization records are received.
Students whose complete immunization documentation is not received within 30 days of the first day of classes will be suspended from campus. Such students will not be allowed to attend classes until their immunization block is cleared.
Students who are suspended from attending classes due to immunization noncompliance must discuss all academic requirements directly with their academic program director and will be responsible for all financial obligations including, but not limited to, full tuition and applicable fees.
The MMR/Meningitis Form is available online as well as in the LIU Hudson office. Students should return their completed forms to the Admissions Office.
