Immunizations

Proof of immunity is an Illinois state requirement. All Loyola students enrolled in seven or more credit hours must complete the two-step process to verify proof of immunity. Incomplete immunization information will block access to registering or changing classes. All students must submit immunization requirements into LOCUS and submit supporting documents to the Wellness Center before the 10th day of the semester. Beginning Fall 2017, failure to provide timely information will result in a $50 Non-compliance fee, that may be applied to your account. The Non-compliance fee is non-refundable, and will not be removed even after immunization information is completed. Students living in University-owned housing will not be permitted to move in until the two-step process is complete.

*Please note, immunization requirements must be submitted , even if non-compliance fee was applied, in order to register for class  or make a change to your registration.

Document Submission

Step 1: Enter your immunizations on LOCUS. This also allows you to print copies of your immunization records.
