New Incoming ETSU Students
If you are a new incoming ETSU student who has received one MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine and one Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine, you may complete the One Semester Immunization Exemption Form. Complete this form and submit it to the Registrar's Office in order to register as a full-time student. You will need to provide medical documentation of having received the 2nd dose of your vaccine(s) within 30 days to the University Health Center. If you have not submitted the necessary documentation to the University Health Center this may affect your ability to add/drop classes, receive your final grades, and/or register for the following semester.
Online Only Students
If you are a student taking online and distance-learning courses only, you are exempt from the immunization requirements, unless you are living in on-campus housing. Even though you are exempt, the following Online Only Immunization Exemption form must be completed and submitted to the Registrar's Office prior to registering for classes. Keep in mind, this form will need to be completed and submitted to the Registrar's Office for every semester you are an online and distance-learning only student.
Students who are allergic, pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a medical condition preventing them from receiving these vaccinations may complete the Medical Exemption Waiver. This waiver will need to be notarized and submitted with a signed medical document from a medical provider. Please submit the form and required documentation to the University Health Center.
In accordance with the State and ETSU policy, you may submit the original notarized Religious Exemption form to the University Health Center.
