  • 2 doses are required starting after age 1
  • Must have at least 28 days between dose 1 and dose 2
  • Can be given as separate or combined vaccine
  • Will accept titer results as an acceptable form of documentation if test proves immunity. Must submit copies of lab results with date of titer. (A titer is a blood draw that tests for immunity in the blood)

Meningitis (Meningococcal) - Meningitis Information (CDC link)

  • All students 21 years of age and younger must provide documentation of vaccination of Meningitis
  • Vaccination must be AFTER age 16
  • NOTE: Meningococcal-B is a separate Meningitis vaccination. It does NOT meet the NDSU requirement. 

Tuberculosis Testing

  • Any student who has lived in or traveled to a country for more than 30 days where there is a high incidence of tuberculosis (TB) should contact Student Health Service and ask to speak to a nurse to determine if TB screening is necessary.

Deadlines for Submitting Records

** Students who are non-compliant may receive a registration hold on their account that will prevent them from registering for future classes.
