Alvernia requires all students to submit a Medical History Form with a record of their immunizations and a Tuberculosis Questionnaire on or before their scheduled Connection Day for Fall enrollment and by January 1st for Spring enrollment.
All students are required to have a meningitis vaccine on or after his/her 16th birthday or sign a waiver refusing the immunization.
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.
