2.14.1 Immunization Records

Minnesota Law (M.S.135A.14) requires that all students born after 1956 or who graduated from a Minnesota High School prior to 1997 and enrolled in a public or private post secondary school in Minnesota must be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella.

The student must provide proof of immunization by completing the Immunization Record for Students Attending Post Secondary Schools form prior to registering for classes. This form was distributed with your acceptance letter.

Exceptions:

  1. This form need not be completed by students who are enrolled for only one class during the full academic semester or for customized training, extension, correspondence or online courses only.
  2. Students may also be exempt for medical or conscience reasons.
  3. Transfer students from a different Minnesota college if transcripts or other information from the previous school indicate that the student has met immunization requirements.

Note: Students are legally required to supply the immunization information requested, including the month, day and year of each immunization. The law stipulates that anyone enrolled at Alexandria Technical and Community College who fails to submit the required information within 45 days of the beginning of the semester cannot remain enrolled.

Students enrolled in certain programs at Alexandria Technical and Community College may be required to submit additional immunization records besides those indicated within this policy.
