Health Requirements

General Information

The State of Massachusetts mandates that all college students (graduate and undergraduate) be immunized against certain preventable diseases. These include:

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis

The requirement includes two doses of measles vaccine, three doses of hepatitis B vaccine and a tetanus/diphtheria vaccine within the past 10 years.

Babson College requires that all students be immunized against varicella (chicken pox) or show that they are immune to the disease. The college must ensure that all students are in compliance with this State mandated immunization law; therefore a student's enrollment process cannot be considered complete until the immunization requirements are fulfilled.

Immunizations are done in Health Services for those students who have not been able to complete their immunization requirements prior to their arrival; because the immunization process is rather lengthy, we expect that most if not all of the immunization requirements will be completed before you come to Babson. There will be holds placed on anyone who has not completed their immunization requirements which will block registration.

Health Services charges for all immunizations. The cost of the immunizations vary according to what vaccine is required. Payment is due at the time of the immunization and only cash or checks are accepted. We do not bill for immunizations. Students may waive the meningitis immunization by signing the state meningitis waiver form which can be accessed by clicking on the Massachusetts Meningococcal Vaccination Information and Waiver form below.

Transfer or MBA Students

Your previous institution may have copies of your immunization records. You may need to contact that institution's Health Services to request these records.

Note: The same forms are used for both the undergraduate and graduate programs.
