Required Immunizations

Welcome to Aurora University. As you prepare to join the AU community, specific information needs to be on file in Health Services PRIOR to your arrival.  All undergraduate students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours of on-campus instruction, and graduate/doctoral students enrolled in 3 or more credit hours of on-campus instruction are required to complete our Student Health/Immunization Record form. The front side provides Health Services with information about your general health, and the back side provides information about your immunization history required by the State of Illinois College Immunization Code (77 ILL. Adm. Code 694) and Aurora University.

When completing the immunization history section pay close attention to the detailed immunization requirements listed below, as failure to provide all required information could result in delay with your registration.
