First Time Freshmen

In order to provide a safe and healthy environment for your academic success, The University of Louisville implemented a First Time Freshman Immunization Compliance Requirement program beginning Fall 2014.  All new incoming freshman students are required to provide proof of routine childhood immunization records against most vaccine preventable communicable diseases and a tuberculosis screening.

Vaccine preventable diseases outbreaks continue to occur on and near college campuses throughout the United States.  With the growth in on-campus housing, immunizations provide additional protection to ensure your safety as well as the safety of those around you.  Communicable disease outbreaks can cause significant disruption to your academic program as well as to the University's operations.

The University of Louisville's immunization requirements were developed utilizing the American College Health Association (ACHA), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CSC) immunization schedules, guidelines, and vaccine recommendations.
