New Jersey State Law requires all students, both undergraduate and graduate (born after 1956) to submit proof of immunity to Measles (2 doses), Mumps, and Rubella or file a valid exemption. Detailed information about the required immunizations or valid exemptions can be found on page 3 and 4 of the Entrance Health Record. Documented proof of immunity or exemption must be submitted to the Health and Wellness Center. Failure to comply will result in a "hold" being placed on all future registration for classes at NJCU.
Effective Fall 2004, all new students ( who plan to live in campus housing) must present documented proof of one adult meningococcal meningitis vaccination (Menactra, Menveo, or Menomune) as a condition of residence at NJCU. Students who fail to submit this information will not be permitted to move into campus residential facilities. If your most recent adult dose of meningitis vaccine was longer than 5 years ago, a booster is highly recommended.
Skin testing for exposure to Tuberculosis (TB) is not currently required for all students. We strongly advise, as a good health practice, that you consider having this screening test performed (Mantoux or PPD). As with other optional tests and vaccines, Tuberculin (TB) skin screening will be required for some majors, internships, or work experiences. Your will be notified by your individual programs, of this requirement.
