DePauw requires the following immunizations for the 2023-2024 academic year:
- Varicella (2 doses)
- Meningococcal (1 dose after the age of 16)
- Hepatitis B
- TDaP booster (within the last 10 years)
- MMR (measles, mumps and rubella)
- COVID-19 bivalent vaccine
International students will also require a tuberculosis screening in the United States.
It is recommended that all students receive an annual influenza vaccine.
Immunization requirements are reviewed each spring and updated by April for the following academic year.
Submitting Immunization Records
DePauw utilizes a third-party, HIPAA-compliant company, Med+Proctor, to collect and verify immunization records for students. All students are required to submit a completed Immunization Record via their portal at www.MedProctor.com prior to arrival on campus.
- Students entering for the Fall term must submit complete records by August 1.
- Students entering for Winter or Spring term must submit complete records by January 1.
Students who do not submit complete Immunization Records will not be able to register for classes for the subsequent semester.
Proof of required immunizations can ONLY be provided by completing the Med+Proctor process, using the designated form, at www.medproctor.com. No other documentation will be accepted to meet this requirement.
Please visit the DePauw Health Med+Proctor website and follow the prompts to securely upload your immunization information.
Immunization Records may only be submitted using the Med+Proctor form through the Med+Proctor system. Immunizations submitted to DePauw Health Wellness Center officials or elsewhere will NOT satisfy the requirement.
Requests for exemption from the immunization requirements for other than medical reasons may be recognized by DePauw based on religious grounds only. Requests for exemption must be made in writing, in advance of the start of classes and signed by the student.
Requests for exemption from immunization requirements based on medical grounds must be accompanied by a written statement from the student’s 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, certifying pregnancy or suspected pregnancy, or verifying that the student is currently completing the course of all required immunizations. Medical exemptions expire when the medical condition(s) contraindicating immunization change in a manner which permits immunization.
All requests for exemption will be reviewed and decided by the medical director. Students should submit a Request for Exemption to the Immunization Requirement and any accompanying documentation to email@example.com by August 1 for students matriculating in the fall and January 1 for students enrolling for spring. Approved exemptions will be kept on file at the DePauw Health Wellness Center.
Students holding exemptions may be excluded from campus activities or instructed to leave campus in the event of an outbreak – on or near campus – of any of the vaccine-preventable diseases until the outbreak is over.
Further information regarding immunization requirements or exemptions may be obtained by contacting DePauw Health Wellness Center at 765.658.4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
