Transfer students and students enrolled in the School of Graduate and Adult Education should complete the forms by August 1st for Fall enrollment and January 1st for Spring enrollment.
All students are required to have a meningitis vaccine on or after the 16th birthday or sign a waiver refusing the immunization. Students entering the University after 22 years of age are exempt from the meningitis requirement.
All students are required to complete the annual Student Health Insurance Waiver and provide proof of current health insurance coverage. Students who do not have health insurance coverage will be enrolled in Alvernia's student health insurance plan.
Many programs of study have additional health requirements to participate in off campus internship experiences, i.e. fieldwork, clinical, student teaching, etc.). Please check your handbook or discuss these requirements with your advisor so you can address these additional requirements prior to the semester of the off campus experience. Not meeting these additional requirements could delay your participation in the experience. Some majors such as nursing, occupational therapy, athletic training and others also require a physical exam. This exam will need to be completed by your medical provider. Student athletes should speak with the Athletic Department regarding the medical requirements for participation in an NCAA sport.
The Health & Wellness Center follows FERPA and HIPAA regulations regarding the confidentiality of your medical record.
