Registration Holds & Immunization Requirements

The University of Minnesota requires all enrolled students to meet vaccination requirements.

How to Complete Your Vaccination Requirement:

To avoid or remove registration holds, complete the following online student immunization form or printable student immunization form by the sixth week of the semester:

Please note that this is a one-time submission that all new students are asked to complete. If this is not your first semester at the University, you have likely already met this requirement and you do not need to complete it again.
