Cases of Measles have been confirmed in
the District of Columbia and Fairfax, VA
in recent months.
Measles is a
highly contagious viral infection.
Most individuals have been immunized against measles but if you are not sure of your status, please check with your health care provider. There is a simple blood test that can be done to confirm whether you are protected or not. All students under the age of 26 at CUA are required to document immunity to measles.
All students under the age of 26 are required by DC Law to submit immunization records.
All freshmen being admitted to the University for Fall 2015 are required to submit immunization records by July 1, 2015. Students that have not submitted records or their records are not complete by July 1, will have a $100 late fee assessed to their student account. Graduate students, transfers and international students are asked to submit their records by August 1, 2015. If we have not received your records or they are not complete, it will be reflected in your check list on Cardinal Station. Please see our immunization page for more detailed information and the immunization form that can be downloaded.
If you are a current student and have noted that your student account has a hold placed on it for "health" reasons, your immunization record may be incomplete or missing. Please contact Student Health Services at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. This hold will prevent you from being able to register for the Summer and Fall 2015 semester.
If you will be under 18 years of age when you start the semester, please have your parents sign and complete the medical consent form. This form is required in order to treat you at Student Health Services.
