Immunization Compliance

Indiana University wants to make sure that all students are safe from communicable diseases. For this reason, the university requires students to have vaccinations or immunity against major childhood diseases and to be tested for tuberculosis. This is called immunization compliance. 

You must take care of this immunization compliance if you plan to study during more than one semester period (Fall, Spring, Summer) at PIE or IUPUI. 

These are the communicable childhood diseases you must prove vaccination or immunity for: 

  • Measles – First Immunization 
  • Measles – Second Immunization (after minimum 30 days) 
  • Rubella (German measles) 
  • Mumps 
  • Tetanus-diphtheria- acellular pertussis (Tdap) 
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox) – First Immunization 
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox) – Second Immunization (after minimum 30 days) 

All international students must provide documentation that they have been tested for tuberculosis in the United States, the date the test was performed, and the results of the test, or submit to a test administered on campus shortly after arrival. 

Staff from the PIE will assist you throughout your first session in taking care of your immunization compliance. All of the tests or vaccinations can be done at the Student Health Center on campus.
