State Immunization Requirements for Enrolled Students

Indiana state law requires all new, regularly enrolled students attending residential campuses of Indiana public universities be immunized against Rubeola (10 day measles), Rubella (German measles), Mumps, Meningitis, Diphtheria, and Tetanus. This law requires the university to block the enrollment of any student who does not comply with immunization requirements. If your record is held for immunization noncompliance, registration for future courses cannot be completed until all requirements have been met.

All incoming students MUST complete the immunization information form located under the forms tab in the Patient Portal found at If you are not able to access the portal immediately, please check back during the first week of classes. Most common with graduate students.

Indiana law does not require a physician to confirm dates of immunizations. You may self-report your immunization dates utilizing the Patient Portal.

Tuberculosis Clearance Students must have a QFT (quantiferon blood test) as the initial part of the Tuberculosis clearance. Those with a positive result, will have additional steps to complete. The clearance must be done after the student arrives in the United States and no more than 3 months prior to attending classes at Purdue University. Those not in compliance will not be able to register for future courses until the requirement has been met.  Learn more about Tuberculosis.


State-required immunizations are available at the Student Health Center and through other healthcare providers.

Why Men B?

Purdue requires 2 doses of the Meningitis B vaccine for all incoming students under the age of 24. College students are at an increased risk of being infected with the rare, but serious disease. Please click here to access our Meningitis B fact sheet.


Requests for exemption to these requirements based on religious grounds must be made in advance and signed by the student.

A medical exemption will be granted upon receipt of a written statement from a healthcare provider indicating the nature and duration of the medical condition which contraindicates an immunization, along with the specific vaccine identified as detrimental to the student's health, or certifying pregnancy or suspected pregnancy. Medical exemptions expire when the medical condition(s) contraindicating immunization change in a manner which permits immunization.

In the event of an outbreak of any of the vaccine preventable diseases covered by this law on or near campus, students holding exemptions will be excluded from all campus activities, for their protection, until the outbreak is declared to be over. Submit immunization documentation to
