2003-2005 Academic Catalog
Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A.14), effective July 1, 1990, requires that all students born after 1956 and enrolled in a public or private post-secondary school in Minnesota be immunized against tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps and rubella, allowing for certain specified exemptions. All students are required to submit their immunization information to show compliance with this law.
Every student enrolling in a program of study at the College of St. Catherine must provide immunization information to the Student Compliance Office located on the Minneapolis campus. The requirements differ depending on whether a student is entering in a clinical or non-clinical program.
Forms are due to the Student Compliance Office by the specified date of the first semester in which students are enrolled. This date can be found at the Health and Wellness Center's homepage. Failure to provide all required immunization information by the deadline date will result in a hold on the student's account to prevent registration for following semesters. In addition, a late fee may be applied to the student's account.
NON-CLINICAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:
The forms for students in non-clinical programs are available in the Student Compliance Office located on the Minneapolis campus and in the Health and Wellness Center on the St. Paul campus. Please see the Health and Wellness Center's homepage for the immunization requirements and the deadline dates.
CLINICAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:
To protect all persons in a healthcare program from possible exposure to communicable diseases, every student enrolling in a program of study that includes an off-site clinical rotation is required to provide a more extensive health and immunization history to the College. These requirements can be found on the Health and Wellness Center's homepage, along with the deadline dates. Students will be asked to update their Mantoux test every 11 months or sooner if required by their clinical site, in addition to completing their Hepatitis B series. The Student Compliance Office sends a reminder to students via their College-assigned e-mail account when it is time to update the requirements. Failure to comply by the specified deadline date will result in a hold on the student's account and removal from clinical rotation. In addition, a late fee may be applied to the student's account.
The forms for students in clinical programs are available in the Student Compliance Office on the Minneapolis Campus.
