Registration for any course will be “temporary” until the completed proof of immunization compliance form has been reviewed and approved by Student Affairs. Failure to meet these requirements by the deadline will result in an Enrollment Hold being placed on your student account in LORA Self-Service, which will restrict you from dropping or adding classes and/or enrolling for classes for the next semester. 

For questions about Loyola’s immunization requirements, please email immunization@loyno.edu or call the Office of Student Affairs at 504-865-3428.

All admitted Loyola students (undergraduate, graduate, and law) are required to show proof of the following immunizations:

  • Tetanus-diphtheria Requirement: A booster dose of vaccine given within the past ten (10) years.
  • Quadrivalent Meningococcal A,C,Y,W-135 Vaccine Requirement: It is mandatory for students enrolled at Loyola to be vaccinated against meningococcal disease. A Quadrivalent Meningococcal A,C,Y,W-135 vaccine (one dose at age 16 years or older).
  • Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Requirement: Two (2) doses of live vaccine given on or after the first birthday. A history of physician-diagnosed measles, mumps or rubella (including positive titers) is acceptable for establishing immunity if properly documented. In cases where no records can be located, or especially when immunization in the past is doubtful, two doses of MMR separated by a minimum of 30 days may be indicated.

Louisiana Law 

Louisiana law (R.S. 17:170 - Schools of Higher Learning) requires proof of dates of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, and tetanus-diphtheria for all first-time Loyola students born on or after January 1, 1957, and for reentering students (born on or after January 1, 1957) who have been out of school for one semester or longer. The following guidelines are presented for the purpose of meeting the established recommendations for control of vaccine-preventable diseases, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to the United States Public Health Service (ACIP), and the American College Health Association (ACHA). In addition, current Louisiana legislation now mandates Quadrivalent Meningococcal A,C,Y,W-135 vaccination for persons being admitted to a postsecondary education institution.
