Immunization Policy

In accordance with N.C. Department of Health and Human Services and the laws of N.C., Montreat College requires all students who are attending our college with a load of 4 on-campus credit hours or more to have proof of certain current immunizations. According to statute 130A-155.1:

“If a certificate or record of immunization is not in the possession of the college or university on the date of first registration, the college or university shall present a notice of deficiency to the student. The student shall have 30 calendar days from the date of the student’s first registration to obtain the required immunization. If immunization requires a series of doses and the period necessary to give the vaccine at standard intervals extends beyond the date of the first registration, the student shall be allowed to attend the college or university upon written certification by a physician that the standard series is in progress. The physician shall state the time period needed to complete the series. Upon termination of this time period, the college or university shall not permit the student to continue in attendance unless the required immunization has been obtained.”
