Health & Safety

Our Health Services office provides students with a variety of services: consultation with a registered nurse, referrals to health professionals, immunizations and vaccinations and over-the-counter medication.


Required Immunizations

MMR (Mumps, Measles and Rubella)

The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education requires that all students born after 1956 provide documentation of two (2) doses of Measles, Mumps and Rubella administered no less than one month apart, or provide documentation of titers proving immunity to each disease.

Meningococcal (Students age less than 21)

Effective Fall 2017, newly admitted students ages 21 and younger must provide documentation of immunity against Meningococcal disease in accordance with this policy. The Chancellor shall adopt procedures implementing these requirements. Documentation of immunity under subsection 2 in SBHE Policy 506.1 means evidence of at least one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine at age 16 or older.

Registration Holds

The Student Health office is responsible for monitoring student compliance with health policies. If you fail to provide Student Health with documentation of required immunizations before the designated pre-registration period for next term’s classes. The computer will inform you that you have a hold placed. Should this happen to you, call the Student Health Office at 701-228-5460, or come directly to the SHC to find out why we have placed the hold and what you must do to have it removed.

Exemptions
According to the NDUS policy, students enrolled only in distance learning courses, courses taught off campus, continuing education or noncredit courses, and students in attendance at camps, workshops or programs and classes delivered under contract to a third party are exempt from this policy. Campuses shall grant additional exemptions upon application to and approval by the authorized institution official, under established campus procedures, when: (a) immunization is contraindicated by illness, pregnancy, allergies, or other medical condition certified by a licensed physician; (b) the student has had one immunization and agrees to have a second one no less than one month later; or (c) the student’s beliefs preclude participation in an immunization program.
