Measles Immunization Documentation (Portland Campus Only)

The State of Oregon (OAR 333-050-0130) requires that all first-time students who are taking courses for credit at the Portland campus provide documentation of two doses of the measles vaccine. If you fail to provide the Seminary with documentation of required measles immunizations, we are legally obligated to prevent you from attending classes after your first semester. In addition, if you are attending Western on a non-immigrant visa (F1 international students, or R1, R2, HB1, H4 visa classes) and you have not previously been properly immunized with the measles vaccine, you are required by law to have received at least the first of two doses of measles (Rubeola) vaccine no more than 28 days prior to the beginning of your class attendance at Western. You will then be required to receive your second dose prior to attending classes in your second semester.
