Student Health and Immunizations

To assist in maintaining your health and the health of others on campus, the Student Health Center offers a caring, confidential environment. The maintenance of a student health record is essential for all students. Please read below to understands the requirements for students living on and off campus.

The State of New Jersey requires each student attending state-accredited institutions of higher education to provide his or her complete immunization record. Additionally, every full-time undergraduate and graduate student must also have a completed Student  Health and Immunization Record in the Student Health Center.

To comply with State of New Jersey legal requirements and Stevens requirements, full-time students must be immunized with:

  • Two (2) doses of measles vaccine
  • One (1) dose of mumps vaccine
  • One (1) dose of rubella vaccine
  • One (1) does of meningitis vaccine (required by NJ law for NEW students living in Stevens OWNED OR LEASED housing). Meningococcal vaccine-covering serogroups A,C,Y, and W-135.  We accept Menactra, Menomune, or Menveo.  If the initial dose was administered before the 16th birthday, a booster dose should be administered after the 16th birthday. The minimum interval between doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine is 8 weeks.  (College health centers in New Jersey must provide information about meningitis disease and keep records of the enrolling student’s decision about whether or not to receive a meningitis vaccination if they are not residing in campus OWNED OR LEASED housing).
  • Proof of the Hepatitis B series of vaccinations
  • PPD/Mantoux tuberculin skin test within six months of attending classes and chest x-ray report if positive

An incomplete Student Health and Immunization Record will result in a Registrar’s hold being placed on student accounts. This means students will not be able to register in person or via the web for any future classes until all forms are received by the Student Health Center.

The Student Health and Immunization Record must be completed in full, signed, and dated by a healthcare provider/MD.
