Submit MMR Form

In compliance with New York State public health law, Columbia University requires all students to provide documentation of immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) before their first term of study.


Students must submit documentation of immunity to MMR to the Columbia Health Immunization Compliance Office prior to registering for classes. It is recommended that students complete this requirement at least 30 days prior to their scheduled registration date. For this reason, all incoming students are placed on hold prior to their first registration, until the MMR documentation is received and processed.

There are several ways to document immunity. Completed documentation may be submitted in the following ways:

Preferred Methods

  • Online: Secure digital upload via the Patient Portal (Instructions)
  • In Person: Immunization Compliance Office, John Jay Hall, 3rd Floor, Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
