What immunizations are required for admission to Carleton College?

Information about requirements for incoming students is available on the Student Health and Counseling website.

To be compliant with Minnesota State Law, all incoming Carleton students are REQUIRED to:

  • Submit dates of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), for which you will need evidence of 2 doses.
  • Submit dates of immunization against tetanus and diphtheria (Tdap preferred, Td also acceptable); must have been received after September 1, 2002.
  • Complete the online Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment form. If you answer "Yes" to any of the Risk Assessment questions, you'll need to visit your health care provider to fill out the TB Clinical Documentation Form and submit hardcopy results of a Mantoux (PPD) skin test or IGRA blood test performed after March 15, 2012.
