New Student Health Requirement

University of Nebraska-Lincoln requires new students to show proof of two separate rubeola measles/MMR immunizations or a positive rubeola lab result. The immunization record typically can be obtained from your high school or health care provider.

To complete the health requirement:

  1. Log into MyRED.
  2. Go to Admissions and select graduate or undergraduate.
  3. Under Important Links, select Health Requirement.
  4. Choose Immunization Portal and enter the dates of your immunizations.
  5. Attach the relevant immunization record to the form in PDF format; the student’s first and last name and birthdate must be on the PDF.

The form cannot be submitted until the relevant immunization record is attached. However, the form can be saved for a later date when the student is ready to attach the relevant immunization record and submit it. Students who are unable to submit their records on MyRed can bring a copy with them to New Student Enrollment.

If immunization record can’t be found:

  • Receive two rubeola measles/MMR immunizations at Nebraska Medicine–University Health Center scheduled 30 days apart. Appointments are required. Call 402.472.5000 to schedule. This will incur a cost and the patient will be responsible for the bill
  • -OR-

  • Have a rubeola blood test drawn at the health center. This blood test will look for antibodies to measles, mumps and rubella to determine if a person is immune to the diseases. Appointments are not required for this test. Walk in to the health center administration office, located on the first level of the building, between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to get the process started. A negative test result requires two rubeola measles/MMR immunizations. This will incur a cost and the patient will be responsible for the bill
