Incoming Student Prerequisites
Required of all students: (including Metro College, graduate and professional students)
In keeping with the recommendations of the American College Health Association, Samford University requires certain immunizations upon matriculation. All students are required to submit the Immunization Record to Student Health Services prior to registering for their first semester classes. The record must be signed by a health care provider or health department stamp. Failure to submit this documentation within two weeks of the first day of class will result in a $150 fine and a registration hold on the student’s record. See deadlines.
Living in university housing:
Students living in university housing are also required to submit the Health Form in addition to the Immunization Record. The physical examination and laboratory work must be within twelve months of submission to Student Health Services and will only be accepted on the university forms. Please note that if you are a student-athlete, your athletics physical will not be accepted in lieu of these forms.
