Incoming students, please submit your immunizations today!
Proof of immunity is an Illinois state requirement. All Loyola students enrolled in seven or more credit hours must complete the two-step process to verify proof of immunity. Incomplete immunization information will block access to registering or changing classes. All students must enter immunization requirements into LOCUS and submit supporting documents to the Wellness Center before the 10th day of the term.
Failure to provide timely information may result in a $50 Non-compliance fee, that may be applied to your account. The Non-compliance fee is non-refundable, and will not be removed even after immunization information is completed. Students living in University-owned housing will not be permitted to move in until the two-step process is complete.
*Please note, immunization requirements must be submitted , even if non-compliance fee was applied, in order to register for class or make a change to your registration.
NOTE: Due to remote working conditions, it is taking longer to verify immunizations than previous years. We ask that you please check your LOCUS account periodically before calling to check on the status of your immunization records.
Step 1: Enter your immunizations on LOCUS. This also allows you to print copies of your immunization records.
Step 2: Submit a copy of your official immunization record (from your high school or a healthcare provider) to the Wellness Center via fax or email. The Wellness Center's email address is email@example.com. If you submit your records via email, they MUST be in PDF format.
NOTE: Due to COVID-19, the Wellness Center's buildings are closed, so we will not be able to process copies that are mailed in until the office reopens. We can still process immunization records that are faxed or emailed.
