2005-2007 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. As a St. Kate’s student, you are required to submit your immunization information to show compliance with this law.
By enrolling in a program of study at the College of St. Catherine you must provide immunization information to the Student Compliance Office located on the Minneapolis campus. The requirements differ depending on whether you are entering into a clinical or non-clinical program.
Immunization forms are due to the Student Compliance Office by the specified date of the first semester in which you are enrolled. This date can be found at the Student Compliance Office’s Web site. Failure to provide all required immunization information by the deadline date will result in a hold on your record to prevent you from registering for following semesters. In addition, a late fee may be applied to your student account.
NON-CLINICAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:
The immunization forms for non-clinical programs of study 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 Student Compliance Office’s Web site for all the immunization requirements and deadline dates.
CLINICAL PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS:
To protect all persons in healthcare programs from possible exposure to communicable diseases, students enrolling in a program of study that includes an off-site clinical rotation are required to provide a more extensive health history and immunization report to the College. These requirements can be found on the Student Compliance Office’s Web page along with the deadline dates. You will be asked to update your mantoux test during July or August, so your mantoux test remains current through the academic year. You may be asked to have a two-step mantoux test or additional mantoux tests administered if required by your clinical site. As a student enrolled in healthcare education, you will also be required to complete the Hepatitis B vaccination series. The Student Compliance Office will send reminder notices to your College-assigned e-mail account when it is time to update these requirements. Failure to comply by the specified deadline will result in a hold on your record and removal from clinical rotation eligibility. In addition, a late fee may be applied to your student account.
The forms for students in clinical programs are available in the Student Compliance Office on the Minneapolis Campus.
