Exemptions

Nebraska State Colleges System Policy: 3000

Admission Requirements; Undergraduate: General

Except as provided in Procedures a and b below, all students entering any institution of the Nebraska State College System must show a physician-validated immunization record for measles, rubella, diphtheria, and tetanus. Applicants from foreign countries are required to present a record of skin testing completed within six (6) months prior to first enrollment in addition to the above required record of immunization. This evidence must be presented before a student is permitted to register.

  • A person qualifies for a medical exemption from the requirement to show proof of immunization when the person files a bona fide statement signed by a physician licensed to practice medicine within the United States verifying that the physical condition of the person seeking admission makes the required immunization unsafe and indicating the specific nature and probable duration of the condition. The person qualifying for the exemption must sign a waiver form provided by the college stating that, if an outbreak of measles or rubeola occurs on campus, the person may be subject to exclusion from the campus and college related activities during the outbreak period.
  • A person qualifies for a religious exemption when the person files a notarized affidavit on an approved form that immunization is contrary to the religious tenets and practices of the signers. A person qualifying for this exemption must sign a waiver form provided by the college stating that, if an outbreak of measles or rubeola occurs on campus, the person may be subject to exclusion from the campus and college related activities during the outbreak period.
  • A person qualifies for a temporary exemption from the requirement to show proof of immunization when an exemption form provided by the college is filed indicating an intent to enroll only in off-campus courses or courses offered off-campus by distance learning technology. This exemption will be reviewed each semester as students who enroll in on-campus courses will be required to show proof of immunization prior to registration.
