International Students (non-U.S. Citizens)

The University of Oregon requires proof of measles (rubeola) and mumps immunity of all entering international students. Without this information you will NOT be able to register for your first term of classes.
 

***Incoming students can now complete their immunization compliance process by logging into myUOHealth and clicking on "Immunizations".***

NOTE: The portal is only accessible one term prior to you enrolling in the university. You must claim your Duck ID before using the student portal.  To claim your Duck ID, go to https://duckid.uoregon.edu. You will need to know your UO ID number and your Personal Access Code (PAC).

You must meet one of the following five guidelines to assure that you are in compliance with the requirement:

  1. Measles and Mumps Vaccines: All entering college students born on or after January 1, 1957, are required to show proof of receiving two doses of measles, mumps or MMR vaccine on or after their first birthday. A measles and mumps booster (or MMR booster) is required for students who received one dose. Simply fill out the Immunization Statement for International Students, attach a copy of your immunization records, and either mail, fax to 1-541-346-2747, or bring to University Health Center.  Be sure to include your full name, date of birth, and student ID number on the form. If immunization information is not available or you do not know your immunization status, the necessary vaccine is available at University Health Center for a fee, but waiting to get the required vaccines at the health center will delay you from registering for classes on time.
    • Note 1: Vaccination records with M-R equals Measles-Rubella vaccine. Vaccination records with MMR equals Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine.
    • Note 2: You can view the Immunization Statement for International Students on your browser, and print it out on your printer. You can then mail, fax, or bring the completed form to University Health Center.
    • Note 3: Please obtain and attach a copy of your immunization record to your Immunization Statement form.
  2. A physician-documented history of measles and mumps: Have your physician fill out and complete the MEDICAL EXEMPTION STATEMENT on the Immunization Statement for International Students, then either mail, fax, or bring to University Health Center.
  3. Born before 1957: Please notify the immunization coordinator at the Health Center, 1-541-346-2764.
  4. Blood (titer) tests which show immunity to measles (rubeola) and mumps: Have your health care provider complete the MEDICAL EXEMPTION STATEMENT of the Immunization Statement for International Students, attach a copy of the titer test results, and return to University Health Center.
  5. Medical exemptions*: Have your health care provider complete and sign the medical exemption statement on the Measles/Mumps Immunization Certificate and return it to University Health Center.
  6. Non-Medical Exemptions*: If you would like to be eligible for a non-medical exemption you must either (1) meet with a doctor, nurse practitioner or nurse to discuss the associated risks of declining immunization; or (2) you may request to watch an educational video regarding immunizations. Once this step is completed you must then complete a non-medical exemption form and sign a Declaration for Exemption form provided by the university. Contact University Health Center to discuss a non-medical exemption.
*Whether for a medical or non-medical exemption, if you are not immune and if there is a case of active measles on campus, you may be excluded from campus (including all classes and extra-curricular activities) for 21 days. In the case of mumps, because of a potentially longer incubation period the duration of exclusion may be up to 25 days.
