New York State Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167 dictate that there are certain immunization requirements that must be met prior to registration:
NYSPHL #2165 requires all students who were born after December 31, 1956 to submit to the College proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).
NYSPHL #2167 requires the College to distribute information to students on meningococcal disease (or meningitis) along with a meningococcal meningitis vaccination response form. Upon receipt of the above, students must complete the response form and submit it to the College.
Students will not be allowed to register unless the above requirements are met.
All medical records and examination reports should be forwarded to the Office of Health Services, A-108.
- The College will not release medical records without signed authorization from the student. Students who are under 18 years of age will need a parent or legal guardian to authorize the release.
- First aid, emergency treatment, psychological counseling and referral, educational, preventive and advisory services are available. Registered Nurses are in attendance whenever classes are in session. Any accident or illness incurred during schools hours or en route to the College should be reported immediately to the Office of Health Services.
- The College does not monitor individual student participation in physical education or athletics. Students are responsible for following the advice of their physicians or health care providers in these matters. The College will take no responsibility whatsoever for any injury which may be suffered should a student participate without advice or against medical advice and for any injury sustained as a result of physical incapacity.
