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 two (2) doses.
  • Submit dates of immunization against tetanus and diphtheria (Tdap preferred, Td also acceptable); must have been received after September 1, 2005.
  • Complete the online Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment form. If you answer "Yes" to any of the Risk Assessment questions, you will need to meet with your healthcare provider and ask them to complete and sign the TB Clinical Documentation Form. Submit this form along with hardcopy results of an Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) blood test (recommended, especially for international students) or a Tuberculin Skin Test (TST, PPD, or Mantoux), and chest x-ray (if applicable), performed after March 15, 2015.
