GCC complies with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Regulations related to the immunization requirements of college students before admission to school and Massachusetts General Laws for the immunization of college health science students as follows:
- Full-time students under 30 years old taking 12 credits or more
- All international students under 30 years old, regardless of credit load
- All health occupations students regardless of age or credit load
- Nursing, Practical Nursing, Paramedic, and Medical Assistant students must meet additional requirements and deadlines specified in their program documents
New students in these categories must provide us with documentation of immunity as specified on the Immunization Records form. Immunization documents must be submitted before starting classes to allow time to complete any missing vaccinations. You have thirty days from the start of classes to provide this information.
Failure to comply with these requirements will result in a HOLD being placed on your record which will prevent you from registering for further classes, adding or dropping classes, and getting transcripts or grades. Health occupations students who miss deadlines jeopardize their placement in the intended program. Medical and religious exemptions are allowed by the regulations and must be renewed annually. Please contact Health Records staff for more information.
All college students be assessed for their risk of exposure to tuberculosis (TB). A simple three question Tuberculosis Risk Survey is assigned to new students in their MyGCC account to complete online.
