3.07 College and State Immunization Policy
Northeastern Junior College complies with Colorado law for immunization, which is as follows:
Colorado law requires college students born since January 1, 1957, to be immunized against measles, mumps, and rubella. All students under the age of 19 must show proof of immunity if they attend a college or university with on-campus housing.
For all public or nonpublic post-secondary education institutions in Colorado, the state law requires that each incoming freshman student residing in student housing, as defined by the institution, or any student who the institution requires to complete and return a standard certificate indicating immunizations received by the student as a requirement for residing in student housing, be provided with information on meningococcal disease. If the student is under the age of 18 years, the student’s parent or guardian must be provided with this information.
Northeastern Junior College requires each new residential student who has not received a vaccination against meningococcal disease or COVID-19, or, if the new student is under the age of 18 years, the student’s parent or guardian, to check a box and sign to indicate that the signer has reviewed information on meningococcal disease and COVID-19 has decided that the new student will not obtain a vaccination against meningococcal disease or COVID-19.
