- Review the University's immunization and health insurance requirements
The University requires all full-time students to have a health card on file with the health center. Mandatory documentation includes two MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccinations with dates, a tuberculosis skin test with results within the last six months and a tetanus shot within the last 10 years. The meningitis immunization is not required; however, it is strongly recommended. Meningitis information is provided to incoming freshmen during the summer orientation program.
Information regarding religious or medical exemptions to immunizations is available from the health center.
The University requests that all full-time students carry health insurance. Student health insurance may be purchased through the University or the student may rely on his or her own or his or her family's personal insurance policy. Any student who does not wish to purchase insurance through the University must sign a waiver card providing the company name and policy number of his or her personal insurance.
Information (including waiver cards) regarding student health insurance through the University is mailed to all full-time upperclassmen in the summer. Waiver cards are also provided to all incoming freshmen during summer orientation and are also available in the health center.
For the 2009-10 academic year only, there will be an option listed on the waiver card for a student to indicate if he or she does not currently have health and student accident insurance and does not plan to purchase such insurance. If this is the case, the University cannot assume financial responsibility for any medical expense necessitated by illness or accidental injury suffered by the student while enrolled at the University. The student must acknowledge that he or she is financially responsible for any and all medical expenses related to any medical care he or she receives for preventative care, illness, or accidental injury. Please understand that some medical care providers may choose not to provide service to a student due to the lack of accident and health insurance.
All full-time students are required to have a health card on file in the health center. Mandatory documentation includes two MMR (mumps, measles, and rubella) vaccination dates, a TB skin test with results within the last six months, and a tetanus shot within the last 10 years. The meningitis immunization is not required; however, it is strongly recommended. Meningitis information is provided to incoming freshmen during the summer orientation program.
