5. Update your immunizations records
A transfer student?
An international student?
Returning to Marquette after leaving for a semester, or more?
Returning from Study Abroad?
If you answered “yes” to any of these, then you may need to update your immunization records, or a registration hold could be placed on your student account. Such a hold could prevent you from registering for any future classes.
Effective fall 2006, all newly admitted or readmitted students (after a one semester or more absence) at Marquette University – undergraduate, graduate and professional students – are required to provide proof of certain immunizations and to complete a screening instrument for Tuberculosis. Proof of immunization and/or disease, is required for MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella), Varicella (Chicken Pox) and Tetanus/Diphtheria. The information must be provided by completing an Immunization History Form and a TB Screening Questionnaire, which can be downloaded from the Student Health Service website. The forms must be submitted to the Student Health Service, where they will be retained in confidence.
Included with the Immunization History Form is a TB Screening Questionnaire. If you answer yes to any of the three questions on the TB Screening, you will be required to have a PPD (Mantoux) skin test, even if you have had a BCG vaccination in the past. The skin test must be performed within one year before your current enrollment, and must be completed in the United States.
If you do not submit the required documentation within 30 days of the start of your first/returning term at Marquette, a registration hold will be placed on your student account, which could prevent you from registering for any future classes. The hold will be removed once the Immunization History Form and TB Screening Questionnaire have been received by the Student Health Service, and the immunization requirements have been met.
Required immunizations are available at the Marquette Student Health Service. Students can contact Student Health Service at 8-7184 to arrange for an appointment for any necessary immunizations and tests.
*Note: Health Science, Nursing and Dental students may be required by their department or school to receive additional immunizations. Contact your department or school for specifications.

14. Week of Sept. 11, 2006 Interchange Highlights
1. The connector ramp from northbound I-43/94 to westbound I-94 will close on September 13, and will not reopen until late 2008. This will make the 25th and Clybourn off ramp unavailable from northbound I-43/94. From the south, the following exits will be available to the Marquette University campus:
· Kilbourn until January 2007
· McKinley after September 15, 2006
· Plankinton after mid-October 2006
· National Avenue; 6th or 16th Street
2. The on ramp to northbound I-43 from McKinley/ Fond du Lac will open on Sept. 15. This will eliminate the need to go all the way to North Avenue and will be the best point to access northbound I-43, until the on ramp at 10th and Highland opens in late November of 2006.
3. Northbound I-43 north of Wells will fully reopen on Sept. 15. There will be three full lanes in the new northbound roadway. Southbound I-43 will temporarily have two lanes in the southbound roadway until mid-October, when all three southbound lanes will be opened.
4. From midnight on Friday, Sept.15, until 5 a.m. the following Saturday morning Michigan/ Tory Hill/ Clybourn will be the detour route for a partial freeway closure. This through-campus detour is a one time situation due to other ramp closures—this is not the normal route!
5. Overnight pavement-breaking north of Tory Hill on northbound I-43 will take place this week. The noisiest work should be completed by midnight.
6. Sign-up for the fourth quarter of Easy Pass (Marquette’s faculty and staff payroll deduction program for the Milwaukee County Transit System) is underway. Sign up in Union Station in the AMU between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. before this Friday, September 15, to get a pass valid from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31.
