Health FAQ

What if my Health Evaluation Form is not returned by July 1st (Spring Transfer Students  - January 31st)

All incoming students are required to complete a health evaluation form prior to arrival on campus. In order to process all incoming forms and confirm immunization compliance, we ask that forms be returned to the SHC by July 1st (Spring Transfer Students due- January 31st).  Students that do not return their forms will be unable to register for classes.
