Health records must be on file in Health Services within 30 days from the start of the semester. An extension of 45 days can be made for international and out of state students. Students who fail to supply the necessary records by the deadlines above will be charged a nonrefundable $25.00 late fee to their student account and risk academic withdrawal from classes and removal from resident housing.

  • Late admits must submit all necessary paperwork prior to registration.
  • Students withdrawn for failure to submit the required health documents will be responsible for any institutional charges incurred up to that point. If you receive a financial aid package, awards may be adjusted accordingly.

Measles (Rubeola):

  • The student must submit proof of two doses of live measles vaccine given after 1967. The first dose given no more than 4 days prior to the student’s first birthday and the second dose at least 28 days after the first dose; or
  • The student must submit serological proof of immunity to measles through a lab report from an approved medical laboratory confirming immunity; or
  • The student must submit a statement from the diagnosing physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner that the student has had measles disease.

Mumps:

  • The student must submit proof of one dose of live mumps vaccine given after 1968 and no more than 4 days prior to the student’s first birthday; or
  • The student must submit serological proof of immunity to mumps through a lab report from an approved medical laboratory confirming immunity; or

  • The student must submit serological proof of immunity to rubella through a lab report from an approved medical laboratory confirming immunity (Since rubella rashes resemble rashes of other diseases, it is impossible to diagnose reliably on clinical grounds alone. Serological evidence is the only permissible alternative to immunization).

Meningitis – the meningitis vaccine is not required, however, all students registering for six or more credits must submit one of the following:

  • Certificate of immunization for meningococcal meningitis disease within the past five years; or
  • An acknowledgement of meningococcal disease risks and refusal of meningococcal meningitis immunization signed by the student or student’s parent or guardian if under the age of 18.
