Immunizations and Required Documentation


North Carolina State law (General Statue 130 A 152-157), requires that all students present documented proof of specific immunizations. The required immunizations are listed on the medical history/immunizations form required of all students prior to registration. Immunization Record & Medical History Forms are available at the Student Health Services located in the Spaulding building or here. All medical information is confidential and is not divulged without the written consent of the student or parent/legal guardian of a minor student.

Any student requesting services must complete the Immunization Record & Medical History Form and provide the required immunization documentation to Student Health Services prior to scheduling an appointment regardless of credit hours or status.  All new students, transfer students, returning former FSU students, students taking more than four hours on campus before 5:00p.m., and students applying for admission to the Teacher Education Program must complete all medical and immunization requirements.*

Immunizations are required by the state of North Carolina and must be physician-certified or verified by a clinic stamp before registering at FSU. Failure to comply with mandatory state immunization laws requires administrative withdrawal from the University.

* Exemption from immunization requirements include: a) students enrolled for four credit hours or less and residing off campus, b) students attending evening (starting at 5:00 pm, c) student taking weekend classes only, and d) students taking off campus classes for the duration of their degree program.

PLEASE NOTE: Any student requesting services must submit a completed Immunization Record & Medical History Form prior to receiving services regardless of credit hours or status.
