Immunization Requirements and Recommendations
Cornell College requires all incoming students to have proof of:
- one Quadrivalent Meningitis Vaccine (A,C, Y, W-135) on or after the student's 16th birthday

Without documented proof of proper Meningitis and MMR vaccination, a student's registration will be cancelled.
