Non-Residential Students: Submitting immunization records is not required for current non-residential students, with the exception of student-athletes and international students.

International Student Requirement: All international students must complete and submit the online Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment form. (link) If you answer “Yes” to any of the Risk Assessment questions, you will be required to schedule a TB screening appointment at Health Services.

Resident Student Requirement: By federal law, each year all resident students must acknowledge that they have been informed about the risks and benefits of receiving the Meningitis and Hepatitis B vaccinations. These vaccinations are recommended, but not mandatory. If students want to have these vaccinations they may do so, at their cost, through their local public health agency, their private physician, or through Alverno College Health Services.

Residents are responsible for reading the Vaccine Information Sheets provided as part of the online housing contract. This form must be completed and returned to Health Services prior to moving into the residence halls. The student resident accepts responsibility (financial, legal, medical, academic) for waiving any missing immunizations, including off-campus living arrangements and fees and/or penalties assessed by the College for missed classes. The College reserves the right to require student residents missing vaccination information to move out of housing in case of emergency.
