All Saint Francis University students are required to have specified immunizations. Freshmen and transfer student will be provided with a student health form for completion once they are accepted to the university. Detailed vaccine requirements are listed on the health form.

Upon completion, students are required to submit their health form to the Student Health Center.

The form is reviewed by a professional staff member and the student is notified by letter of any incomplete health record.

Additional notification is given in person to each freshman and transfer student once they arrive on campus. No student will be permitted to stay in residence halls without proper meningitis vaccination documentation.

All required immunizations are available through the Student Health Center at a reasonable charge. Vaccine waivers may be completed if the student has medical or religious reasons. If a student wants to sign a waiver, the risks are first explained to the student by a Student Health Center professional.
