All full-time students are required to have a physical examination prior to the first day of classes. In addition, State Law mandates all students to complete Immunization Forms with historical data on Measles and Rubella, and Varicella doses. Any student wishing to reside in Campus Housing must provide documentation of vaccination for Meningitis per Connecticut State Law. Meningitis vaccination documentation must be submitted before resident students are allowed to move-in. Students cannot attend class if these forms/documents are not submitted to the Health Clinic.

The College requires that all students have medical insurance. Students may waiver/enroll in the Albertus Magnus College insurance plan through Claim forms may be obtained at the clinic. Brochures outlining the coverage can be obtained from the Vice President for Student Services or the Health Clinic. The health insurance website is printed on the students’ insurance I.D card.

Any student that has been diagnosed with a highly contagious disease/virus may be removed from athletic play/Residence Halls until given clearance by a primary physician.

Meningitis Vaccination

Per the State of Connecticut, all residents must show proof the meningitis vaccination administered within five years of the date of entry (August 1 for the fall semester, January 1 for the spring semester). No resident will be permitted to reside in the residence halls without submitting appropriate medical forms and proof of vaccinations to the Office of Student Life.

Online Students

As of August 1, 2010, Section 10a-155 of the Connecticut general statues requires that each full time or matriculating student provide proof of adequate immunization against measles, mumps,rubella (MMR) and varicella as recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Exemptions to this requirement include:

Enrollment in a distance-learning program conducted entirely through electronic media in a setting without other students present.

By signing the immunization waiver form, you confirm that you plan to enroll in one of our distance learning programs where you intend to take all of your courses fully online. (If you should change your mind at any time and sign up for a blended or on-ground course, you will need to provide proof of the immunizations listed above before being allowed to register for such courses.)

If you are only taking classes online only please download, fill out and fax or mail in the immunization waiver form located here.
