Minnesota law (M.S. 135A.14) requires that students provide a statement that they have received appropriate immunization against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and diphtheria and tetanus (DT). MMR vaccinations must have been administered after 12 months of age. DT vaccinations must have been administered within ten years of the student’s first term of enrollment and must remain current thereafter. A DT immunization is considered current if it is no more than ten years old. Students who were born before 1956 or who graduated from a Minnesota high school after 1997 are not required to submit this information. This law provides for medical and conscientious exemptions.
New students must submit their immunization information on the Normandale Community College application for admission. Students who need to update or resubmit their records can download and print the form from www.normandale.edu/records or obtain one in person from the Records Office. Students who fail to submit their immunization information may be denied registration.
