CONFIRMING YOUR IMMUNIZATION STATUS FOR REGISTRATION
You can check you immunization status by logging on to MyInfo (http://www.montana.edu/students/), select the Student Services tab, select Student Records, then select View Holds. If there is not an Initial Immunization hold or a Tuberculosis Screening hold, your documentation has met the university requirements. If either hold is on your account, you need to submit documentation verifying your immunization status. Please contact our office with questions.
You can check your immunization status by calling our office at 406-994-2311.
Immunization records and registration holds have to be processed by a staff member, so you may continue to see a registration hold after you’ve submitted your documentation. Please allow some time for our staff to process your records.
Please call our office at (406) 994-2311 or email questions about immunizations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
