Information about REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

1) Immunization record

Elon University follows the North Carolina Immunization Branch and the American College Health Association's guidelines regarding immunizations for college students. You should review the regulations and recommendations in the immunization and health record packet.

  • Please note the following that may not be current on your high school immunization records:
  • a second Measles (Rubeola) shot (included in the MMR series)
  • a Tetanus booster with pertussis (Tdap) within the last 10 years

Requirements vary for Doctorate of Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant Studies students. Please familiarize yourself with the specific requirements of your program.

2) Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire

Answer each of the questions on the TB screening questionnaire.

If all answers on the screening questionnaire are no, ensure the student name is on the form and submit with the health packet. Nothing else is needed.

If any questions are answered yes, the student will need to consult with his/her primary care provider to determine if a TB skin test (TST/PPD) is necessary. If the provider determines no further testing is necessary, he/she will sign the form indicating no test is needed. Undergraduate students are NOT required to have a two-step TB test.

3) Report of Medical History 

No physical exam required.

If you include a copy of your health insurance card, you do not need to complete the health insurance information section on page 1.

Please note that Student Health Services does not release any information related to health history or conditions to any other Elon University office. To make University administrators and/ or other offices aware of conditions, please complete the disclosure form located under "Required Health and Immunization Records".

4) Copy of Health insurance card (recommended but not required)

We recommend you copy/scan your health insurance card to be kept on file in Student Health Services. In the event of an emergency, Elon University administrators will have access to your emergency contact and health insurance policy information ONLY.
