All incoming students are required to complete the confidential health record below. The physical must be current (within the past year) and signed by a healthcare provider. The confidential health record and meningitis waiver (if necessary) are due to the Wellness Center by July 30, 2018.

You ONLY need to sign and return the meningitis waiver if your confidential health record does not document receiving the vaccine. We strongly recommend immunization for HPV and influenza.

Information for Parents
Students that seek medical treatment at the Wellness Center have the option of signing a consent form allowing the Wellness Center providers to discuss medical care related issues with the students’ parents or legal guardians. If the consent is not signed, providers will not release any information to parent or legal guardian and refer the parent or guardian back to the student. Students may allow or revoke consent to speak with parents or legal guardians at any time.
Additionally, if the visit is sensitive in nature, the provider will not discuss the issue with a parent or legal guardian without explicit permission from the student.
