The Proof of Vaccination Attestation Form is located in the student's Self Service Portal: click on User Options and then find Student Checklist. If you are having trouble navigating the checklist, please view the short tutorial found on our New Student Experience page.
The University of Redlands cares about the health of our students, whether you live on or off-campus. The medical forms ensure that your vaccinations are up to date and protected from certain infectious diseases. The forms also serve to provide insight into your medical history that can affect your well-being and/or your academics while at the University of Redlands.
Due to the heightened risk of transmission of disease in close quarters, students residing on campus who do not complete and submit the attestation form will not be issued their room key. Students living off-campus who do not complete and submit the attestation may have a hold place on their record. The immunization form must be filled out in it’s entirety to be considered complete.
The University of Redlands follows guidelines for colleges and universities provided by the state of California and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Vaccines protect students from diseases that can derail academic progress. Everyone on campus, including faculty, staff and visitors--and especially the most vulnerable among us--is safer when students are vaccinated, thanks to the power of community (or herd) immunity.
Measles, Mumps, Rubela (MMR): series of 2 vaccines
Varicella (chickenpox): series of 2 vaccines
Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap): to include proof of a booster shot of Td or Tdap within the last 10 years
Hepatitis B: series of 3 vaccines
Meningococcal: at least one vaccine at age 16 or older
COVID-19 : primary series, (1-2 dose series) see vaccination policy for more info.
No. Simply input the immunization dates on the Vaccination Attestation Statement.
You can contact your pediatrician’s office, local school district, previous college, etc. and ask if they have your records. For COVID records, the state in which you received your vaccination should have a record of the injection(s). "Google COVID testing record [insert STATE]." If you cannot confirm the necessary vaccination(s).
If you cannot obtain records, you may need to repeat your vaccinations.
You may test for immunity if you have received the MMR, varicella, and/or hepatitis B vaccines in the past by doing a blood draw called a titer through a medical provider. If the titer for a specific disease shows that you’re not immune, you need to get vaccinated or re-vaccinated. Tests for immunity are not available for meningococcal or Tdap so you will need to be vaccinated. Proof of previous COVID-19 infection or a positive antibody or serology test is not a sufficient substitute for the required proof of vaccination and booster. Those who have contracted COVID-19 are not exempt from this vaccination and booster requirement, as illness alone does not assure immunity.
COVID-19 vaccine exemption requests for reasons other than medical, while very limited in scope, will be considered. Only medical exemptions will be considered for all other vaccinations. Refer to Immunization Exemption Forms above this FAQ, if you will be seeking an exemption request.
If you have questions regarding the health forms, required vaccines, immunity, or exemptions, please email or call Student Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 909-748-8053.
Do not wait until the last minute to work on your vaccination form. Give yourself ample time to schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider should any immunizations be missing, expired, or require blood titer tests as proof of immunity.
