Regulations / Are You in Compliance?
Immunization forms can be obtained from Health Services or through your UIS application site “Required Immunization Information” or on the Patient Portal under forms. The form must be complete, digitally signed, and on file in Health Services by 5 p.m of the 10th official day of the fall and spring semesters or the 5th official day of the summer term.
If a record is not complete and on file in the HS by that date, students will be assessed a non-refundable $35 non-compliance fee. If a student is not in compliance by their second semester at the UIS, the college immunization law does not allow them to register for the 2nd semester.
