Student Health Services is an on-campus clinic that provides direct, basic medical care to all undergraduate students. Services provided are covered by a mandatory undergraduate health fee. Student Health Services also serves as a referral source for students needing care beyond that available on campus. Expenses incurred from care provided off campus are the responsibility of the student. Graduate students and continuing students seeking services during the summer may elect to pay the health fee to access Student Health Services (see “Student Eligibility” in Downloads for details).

Required Health Forms for New Students residing in U.S.
All incoming students are required to submit the following forms to Student Health Services before the first day of classes. Forms may be submitted in person to Student Health Services or sent via mail, email, or fax.
1. Student’s Medical History Form
2. Tuberculosis Risk Questionnaire
3. Proof of Measles Immunity – For most students, this will be a copy of the immunization record indicating two separate dates of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccination. This document can be obtained from the student’s previous school attended, the physician’s office which administered the vaccinations as a child, or the county health department in which the student grew up. If this record is unavailable, proof of measles immunity can be acquired through blood testing (rubeola titer) at a physican’s office. If not immune, the MMR vaccination series must be completed.
Even though Varicella (Chicken Pox), Tetanus, Hepatitis B and Meningitis vaccines are not required, they are strongly recommended.
