University Immunization Requirement

All Creighton University students are required to comply with the University’s immunization requirements. Students receive approval for course registration upon the completion and verification of their immunization records as coordinated by the Student Health Education and Compliance Office. Failure to meet these requirements will result in denial of class registration privileges, as well as a delay in housing assignments. The requirements follow CDC guidelines and are reviewed annually. The Student Health Education and Compliance Office is the official record keeper for Creighton University regarding student immunizations and University immunization requirements. Please consult Student Immunization Requirements for additional details.

Residential Students: Students must have immunization requirements completed and immunization records verified by Student Health Education and Compliance prior to registering for classes and prior to receiving a housing assignment. Students who are in process of completing immunization requirements (i.e., have started a series for the first time) may be granted class registration and/or housing assignment privileges at the discretion of the Student Health Education and Compliance Office.

Immunization Exemptions: Exemptions to the University immunization requirements are considered for students who have a documented medical contraindication to receiving immunizations. Religious exemptions may also be accepted. Students may obtain an exemption form on the Student Health Immunization website. Completed exemption forms are to be submitted to for review.  Students are provided written notification of the acceptance or denial of the exemption request.
