Vaccine Exemptions for college

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm in the "college application" process with my 12th grader right now.  She's currently 17, but will be 18 before school begins. We live in New York State and she's going to a SUNY  (State University of New York) school.

 

I filled out all the  religious exemption forms for public school, but I'm not sure how to go about it now. Do I sign the form because she's not yet 18? Does she sign the form because she will be 18 before classes start? Do we both sign the form? Is the form any different than the one I used for public school?

 

I didn't figure this out with my older daughter, because she turned 18 before applying to colleges, or at least before the applications were processed and they asked for medical records.

I don't think vaccine records are required at this point of the process. She'll need to turn in the exemption before classes start, but not before being accepted.

Congratulations, Ruthla!

 

My four all went to University, Community College, and Trade School and never got a vaccine - I think.  One can never be absolutely sure.

 

There are exemptions that will be signed toward the end of the process.

 

Good luck, and again, congratulations!
