Required Forms for All New Incoming Students

Immunization requirements apply to all undergraduate and graduate students in any full-time program regardless of age. All part-time international students attending on any type of visa must also fulfill immunization requirements.

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

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

  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella
  • Tdap (tetanus, diptheria, pertussis)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Varicella (chicken pox)
  • Meningococcal (MenACWY vaccine)

The requirement includes 2 doses of measles, mumps and rubella vaccines (or 2 doses of combined MMR vaccine), 3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine (or 2 doses of Heplisav-B vaccine on or after age 18), 2 doses of Varicella vaccine and 1 dose of Tetanus-Dipteria-Pertussis vaccine (after completing the primary series) within the past 10 years.

Babson will accept proof of immunity by blood test for Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella and Hepatitis B. Students must submit laboratory evidence of immunity. “Reliable history of illness” from a medical professional is not accepted.

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.

Completion of immunization requirements is expected prior to arrival on campus. For those students who are unable to complete their requirements prior to matriculation, Health Services offers immunizations on campus. The consequences for vaccination non-compliance may include any of the following: OneCard access restriction, “technology” block, inability to register for classes and ultimately removal from the in-person experience.

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.
