    FAQs

    How do I know if I have met my requirements?

    To check the status of your immunization requirements you can log into to your Patient Portal and view your status under the “Immunizations” tab. All students will receive a secure message via the Patient Portal once any submitted documentation has been reviewed. This message will give you a status update on your immunization requirements.

    If your immunization status on your Blazer Net account is listed as “Exempt”, this means you are currently registered for all on-campus classes and not required to complete the immunization requirements.

    **Please note that with any change in your registration, your immunization status may change within 24 hours of the last change made. Please check your immunization status after making any changes to your registration.
