Immunization Policy

Oklahoma state law requires that all new students who attend Oklahoma colleges and universities for the first time provide proof of immunization for certain diseases. If you cannot verify your immunizations you will need to be re-immunized. Medical, religious and personal exemptions are allowed by law and such requests must be made in writing
using the NWOSU Student Immunization form at http://www.nwosu.edu/Websites/NWOSU/Images/forms-docs/immunization.pdf.

In order to enroll as a full-time or part-time student at NWOSU, Oklahoma law requires students to provide written documentation of vaccinations against Hepatitis B and Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) using the NWOSU Student Immunization form at http://www.nwosu.edu/Websites/NWOSU/Images/forms-docs/immunization.pdf. This
applies to all students of any age or at any stage of the education. Exemptions from this requirement may be by providing a written statement from a physician stating that the vaccine is medically contraindicated or by signing a waiver. These vaccinations can be obtained from your family doctor or your community’s health department.
