Immunization and Medical History

Immunization Policy

Before you can complete the registration process for class, all new students, regardless of classification, must have:

  1. Proof of the meningitis vaccination (Menactra, Menveo or Menomune) within the last 5 years
  2. If you were born after 1956, proof of two (2) measles containing vaccinations. One of these vaccines must be an MMR vaccination after 1980.
  3. Acceptable proof of tuberculosis screening within the last year
  4. Your health care provider complete and sign the Immunization Form as acceptable proof of immunizations and TB screening. This form should be returned to the SHC during student orientation, faxed or mailed to the contact information below.

It is in the best interest of the student to submit a record of all immunizations for treatment purposes. All vaccines and tuberculosis screening are available at the Student Health Center billable to insurance, but MUST be completed prior to moving into campus housing or start of classes. Immunization records should be mailed or faxed to:

Medical History

Prior to your first visit, you are strongly encouraged to complete the Medical History Form and to download, print and complete the Pharmacy's New Patient Information Sheet. These should be brought with you at your first visit to the SHC or SHC Pharmacy.

If you have any illness or medical condition that requires regular treatment or alteration of your life style, please have your treating physician provide pertinent information and guidelines that will allow the SHC to assist our physician to provide continuity of care.
