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 Loyola Health and upload supporting documents 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 and uploaded to Loyola Health, in order to register for class or make a change to your registration.
All immunization records must be in English or accompanied by a certified translation or they will not be approved. Also, international students must submit TB testing results.
