Submitting my immunization records

Dear Students:

We are pleased to announce Med + Proctor, an electronic medical clearance platform, as our new innovative strategy to monitor and collect your immunization information. As you know, IL State law requires documentation of childhood vaccines when entering a secondary institution. Med + Proctor is HIPPA and FERPA compliant. 

This new strategy of monitoring immunization compliance will streamline your clearance and help you avoid unnecessary holds that prevent registration. This will allow you to focus on other important matters as you prepare for your successful tenure at IL Tech. 

There is a $10.00 fee to set up your Med + Proctor account. Membership provides lifetime access to your immunization data that can be shared with others as you designate.

How do I use Med +Proctor? 

First, you will need to set up your iit.edu email account. Then register within the Med + Proctor site by visiting Med + Proctor; click “register” to start a new account. The website is user friendly and instructions are easy to follow. Simply complete the required information,ensure your immunization forms are fully completed and signed by your medical provider. Then simply upload your forms to the Med + Proctor site. 

Do not bring or email your completed forms to the Student Health and Wellness Center. You must upload ALL forms to the Med + Proctor site. 

Once you have submitted your immunization records to Med + Proctor , Med +Proctor will review them for compliance and communicate a successful approval or any needed action items through your myiit email. It is important that you are checking your MyIIT email portal for communication should you be out of compliance and need to submit any additional forms . You can also check the status of your account by clicking on the STATUS or MESSAGE tab at the top of your Med + Proctor  page. We encourage you to submit your information as soon as possible. It takes 5-7 business days to be verified after you have completed this process.

If you have difficulty using Med + Proctor , you may contact them by:

·       Browsing the help topics under Student Help

·       Using the chat feature on the lower right side of the screen Emailing help@medproctor.com

Please remember that an immunization HOLD will be placed on your account, preventing Spring 2019 registration, if you are out of compliance for IL State Law immunization requirements by Nov. 1, 2018 (insert hold date). Please start this process as soon as possible to ensure there is no delay in registration. Thank you!
