Where am I?
ALL FIRST TIME and INTERNATIONAL RESIDENT STUDENTS
If you are living in university sponsored housing you must meet the requirements. As part of your housing application process, you must have the following immunizations. If you fail to fulfill this requirement, you will not be allowed to check in to university housing. Resident students must have a completed medical history form with a copy of their immunizations attached. If these requirements are not met, your housing may be in jeopardy.
- Tuberculosis screening (TB) - cannot be older than 6 months prior to moving onto campus AND cannot be received outside of the United States. It is a 2 part screening- inoculation then read by a medical professional 48 hours later.
- Meningococcal vaccine for meningitis (Menactra)
- Mumps - MMR (childhood combination of mumps, measles, rubella) is acceptable.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS LIVING OFF CAMPUS
New international students living off campus must provide evidence that they are free of tuberculosis with a screening and be immunized for mumps. Tuberculosis screening tests (TB/PPD) will not be accepted if received out of the United States.
There will be an opportunity to receive the immunizations on campus after your arrival in the United States. Contact a staff member in the Student Affairs Office to find out more information.
ALL RESIDENT STUDENTS
If our office is notified that a resident student has a positive tuberculosis screening, additional medical attention is required. This additional medical attention is necessary and requires a chest x-ray. It is the resident student's responsibility to provide the university with written documentation that this x-ray and the follow up medical attention has been received.
The Department of Residential Life requests a photo copy of your health insurance card along with a copy of your immunization documents from a clinic or physician's office to the Resident Student Medical Form (pdf) This form along with your immunizations must be in the Residential Life office by AUGUST 1 for the fall semester residents; by JANUARY 1 for the spring semester residents.
