Online Learning Students
Online Learning Students who are taking online classes and will not be on campus for meetings, test taking, use of library with online class enrollment, do not need to complete UNO's health requirement. The requirement will need to be met if a class is taken on campus.
Online Learning students will need to complete every semester an Incomplete Immunization Waiver Form to attest that as a non-immunized student they will not be on campus.
You will see a future hold on your To Do List in MavLINK to remind you to complete the Incomplete Immunization Waiver Form. This will happen each semester you are taking an online class.
Online classes will be verified after enrollment.
For more information and to obtain the Incomplete Immunization Waiver Form, fully-online students should contact their advisor or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To eliminate completing this required waiver every semester comply with what is required of all students below.
Required of all Students
- A student's immunization record must show proof of two separate MMR shots showing month, day, and year it was given OR a copy of a positive rubeola blood (titre) lab test result showing immunity. A copy of this information needs to be submitted.
- Places to look for an immunization record can include any of the following: school immunization record from your high school, previous attended university/college, healthcare provider's office, public health department, or a military record.
- The record must show the MMR shots to be after a student's first birthday and after January 1, 1968.
- If a student just received an MMR and needs to receive another shot to compete the health requirement, you will need to wait 30 days before receiving your second MMR. The health hold is removed during this time.
- If you were born before January 1, 1957 you do not need to submit records or additional information.
- The MMR vaccine and lab services to perform a rubeola blood titre if needed are available in Health Services with no appointment needed.
Meningococcal disease is a rare infection with potentially devastating results. The vaccine is recommended for the first year students living in university housing but is not required by the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
