Immunization Record Waiver

Act 141 of 1987 requires that all entering part-time and full-time students must provide the college proof of two (2) measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunizations according to the guidelines specified under the admissions requirements unless approved for a waiver based on the following criteria:

  • Religious or philosophical reasons
  • Medical conditions

To obtain an immunization record waiver, the student may call the Arkansas Department of Health at 800-462-0599 and ask for the waiver application. Waivers must be renewed each academic year. Immunization records are generally available from the student’s family physician, the student’s public school records, or county health departments. Specific programs may require additional immunizations and must be submitted to the program director. Check individual programs for more details.
