    Immunizations

    Required Immunizations / Registration Hold

    Minnesota law requires all students born after December 31, 1956, who enroll in a Minnesota college or university to be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella. This law allows for some exemptions.  All Hamline students must submit their immunizations and/or the appropriate exemption documents at the start of their college career.  If you do not complete the requirement before August 1st for fall semester or the start of classes in spring/summer semesters, a registration hold will be placed on your record for the following semester.  The easiest way to meet your requirement is to complete the Hamline University Online Immunization Form, where you can also upload your immunization record.  You can also print and complete the Hamline University Paper Immunization Form and submit to Counseling & Health Services.
