What is the measles immunization requirement?
All matriculated UW Seattle campus students are required to provide proof of measles immunity. Satisfying this requirement will allow you to register for classes. Two measles vaccines given after you turned one year of age are the standard when vaccinations are used as proof of immunity.
The two vaccines must have been given at least 28 days apart. A lab report showing a positive titer (blood test showing you have either received the vaccine or had measles) for Rubeola measles can also be used as proof.
Hall Health Center administers the UW Measles Requirement program for the UW Registrar’s office. (Exception: See instructions below for students in certain Health Sciences programs.) If you have difficulty meeting the requirement, please contact Hall Health (see contact information below).
Note: Students born before January 1, 1957 are considered immune to measles and do NOT need to submit proof of immunity.
What is the deadline for measles documentation using the MedProctor form?
First year students and transfer students should submit documentation to MedProctor 5 weeks before registration. All other students, submit your measles documentation at least 3 weeks before you register for classes. You can refer to the UW Registrar for registration dates. Submissions that do not follow the instructions outlined below will require a longer processing time and possibly delay registration.
Measles verification instructions
- Ensure that you have a working uw.edu email address. You must be able to receive and check your uw.edu email account in order to complete this process.
- Select “Register” from the top right corner of MedProctor’s website.
- Create an account in MedProctor using your UW email address (@uw.edu). Note that you will continue to have access to Med+Proctor even after you leave UW.
- Complete your MedProctor profile.
- Download and print the Immunization Certificate form.
- Have a medical provider complete the Immunization Certificate form. If you cannot locate your immunization records from your health care provider and grew up in Washington State, you may request your immunization records from the Washington State Immunizations Registry (see How to Find Your Immunization Records below for other states). Note that the health care provider who originally vaccinated you does not need to sign the form; any licensed health care provider is acceptable. If you are having difficulty accessing a health care provider for signature on your form, bring your immunization record and MedProctor form to Hall Health Center.
- Upload an image of the Immunization Certificate form to MedProctor.
You will receive an email from MedProctor within 7-14 days letting you know if the immunization requirement has been met. Be aware that non-compliant submissions that do not follow the instructions listed above may require additional time.
If you have difficulty using the MedProctor platform, you may contact MedProctor between 8AM and 4PM Monday through Friday:
- Browse the help topics
- Use the chat feature on the lower right side of the screen
- Email email@example.com
Hall Health Center is unable to provide MedProctor technical support.

Certain student groups entering a Health Sciences program at UW are required to submit documentation of a number of completed vaccinations at least two months before starting classes. Hall Health does not administer this vaccination program. Please check with your program to determine if you are required to submit this documentation and visit to the Health Sciences Immunization Program webpage for more information. If you do not have a medical provider to help you obtain any needed vaccines or titers, Hall Health can help! Contact us to schedule an appointment.
