Hepatitis B

The General Assembly of the State of Tennessee mandates that each public or private postsecondary institution in the state provide information concerning Hepatitis B infection to all students enrolling for the first time. Tennessee law requires that these students complete and sign a waiver form provided by the institution which includes detailed information about the disease.

Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)

The State of Tennessee requires full-time students entering colleges, universities, and technical institutes to provide proof of two doses of Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine.


Temporary exemptions


Effective July 1, 2011, Roane State Community College is required by Tennessee state law to obtain proof of receipt of two doses of the Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine, from all new full-time students prior to the first day of classes of students' initial semester of enrollment. Proof may be shown by immunization records, laboratory evidence of immunity, or a history of the varicella disease that has been documented from a health practitioner.

Students who are registering for less than full-time (less than 12 credit hours) are not required to provide proof of the immunization.
