Newly Accepted Graduate Students
Once again, we would like to congratulate you on your admission to graduate study at the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences. To insure a smooth transition to your graduate studies, please consult the contents below listing next steps required before your initial enrollment at Weissman.
INTENT TO ENROLL
Please submit your $250.00 commitment deposit to accept your admission offer. Your nonrefundable commitment deposit will be applied towards your first semester tuition and fees and will guarantee your place in our incoming class.
New York State Law 2165 stipulates that all college students must provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. The Baruch College Medical Records Unit manages the immunization requirement. The Unit is housed in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, yet it manages both undergraduate and graduate immunization records. All immunization inquires, documentation, and the Immunization Form must be sent to the Medical Records Unit at the address indicated.
There are a few ways to provide proof of immunization: Download the Immunization Record Form and have your health care provider complete and stamp it, then submit it to the Medical Records Unit. Request a copy of your immunization records be sent from your undergraduate institution to the Medical Records Unit at Baruch College.
Submit an immunization titer (blood test to confirm immunity) to the Medical Records Unit. This can be done through your own doctor, or the Baruch College Student Health Care Center. You must present your letter of admission to the Student Health Care Center when visiting for your test. The center charges a fee of $60, payable by cash, check, credit, or debit. Your results will not be automatically forwarded on your behalf; you must submit the titer documentation after you receive it. A copy of the laboratory report must be included with the Immunization Record form. Immunization records must have an official stamp. The name on your medical records must match the name on your Baruch application. If it does not, name change documentation must be provided.
