Record Format

Records should be submitted using the World Health Organization's Official International Certificate of Vaccination, frequently referred to as that Carte Jaune or Yellow Card document,  from a clinic recognized and approved to provide and authenticate such records. 

Those unable to provide a WHO International Certificate of Vaccination, should provide original documents signed by primary care providers or other medical professionals.

Records are thoroughly reviewed, and questionable records are researched and investigated.  Submitting Fraudulent records may result in referral to the Dean of Students Office, judicial review, disciplinary action, including suspension and expulsion from the university.

Compliant immunization records MUST:

  • Be in English/transcribed in English
