Immunization requirements must be met prior to registration. All students must submit appropriate documentation verifying that they are in FULL compliance with the New York State immunization requirements listed below.  Students who are NOT in full compliance ARE NOT allowed to register:

Immunization Record

New York State Public Health Law (Article 21, Title VI, Sections 2165 & 2167) require all enrolled college students born after January 1, 1957 to show proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. In addition, proof of meningococcal vaccine within the last five (5) years or a signed declination/waiver is required.

These records are required upon entry to the College and are on file in the Student Health Center. For more information refer to Immunization Handbook for New York State Post-secondary Institutions > Section I Requirements

New York State Public Health Law (NYS PHL) § 2167 requires institutions, including colleges and universities, to distribute information about meningococcal disease and vaccine to all students meeting enrollment criteria, whether they live on or off campus.  Meningitis Vaccine Facts Sheet.pdf

Vehicle Registration

All students who park on campus are required to register their vehicles. Students can purchase a parking permit through the online Parking Permit System.

Go to your CONNECT.OLDWESTBURY.EDU account, sign in, click on the Finances button, click on the Order Parking Permit button, and follow the instructions there. Note that the parking permit is virtual so there will be no decals this year. All students who fail to register their vehicle/s will be subject to ticketing.

Financial Aid

Federal and State aid is available to students enrolled for six or more credits as a regular student in an eligible program.  The types of assistance available to undergraduate students are Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), Federal Pell Grant, and Federal Direct Loan.  Graduate students are only eligible for loans.  Federal regulations require students to complete the financial aid filing process and to prove financial need to be eligible for a Financial Aid award.  Students must meet academic standards to be eligible for financial aid.  For further details, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at or 516-876-3000, option #3. It is suggested that students start their process of filing financial aid paperwork for the summer in early March if possible.
