15 Health Requirement On Graduate Application According to Connecticut Statutes matriculated students in Connecticut universities who were born after January 1, 1957, must provide proof of immunization against measles and rubella (German measles) before they will be permitted to register. Proper measles immunization requires two (2) injections: the first must have been received after 12 months of age and after January 1, 1969, and the second must have been received after January 1, Proper rubella immunization consists of one injection received after 12 months of age. The only exceptions are those students who provide laboratory documentation of immunity to measles and rubella, those who provide a physicians statement that immunization should not be done, or those who provide a statement that the immunization is against their religious beliefs, or those graduated from Connecticut high schools in 1999 or later. Documentation of immunization must be submitted to the Granoff Student Health Service prior to registration. Full-time graduate students who wish to use health services must have completed health forms (questionnaire and physical examination) on file at Granoff Student Health Center. Also, those students who live in on-campus housing must provide documentation of meningitis vaccination. I have read and I understand the health requirement

16 Frequently Asked Questions How many undergraduate/graduate credits can be transferred in? Transfer credits are individually negotiated and not automatically accepted. No more than six credits will be accepted. Can I apply if my teacher certification is from another State? You need to apply for CT certification prior to admission. If otherwise admissible, you may be admitted conditionally.
