What is recommended or required for students?

Are immunizations recommended? U-M recommends that students come to school fully immunized to protect their health. Immunizations are one of the most effective public health measures in preventing communicable diseases.

Students can register for classes without immunizations and without submitting their immunization records, however academic programs or volunteer activities may have different requirements.

Which immunizations are recommended for students?

Is a tuberculosis (TB) test required? A TB test is not a university requirement, however academic programs or volunteer activities may have different requirements.

Is a physical exam required? You may want to arrange for a physical exam with your home health care provider and update immunizations at that time, but a physical exam is not required by the university. (Athletic teams or clubs may have different requirements.)

Does UHS give immunizations? Are there fees? Immunizations are available at UHS for a fee. See Immunizations.

Do minors need parent /guardian consent for immunizations? Yes, students under 18 years old need written parent/guardian consent to receive immunizations. To give consent, parents/guardians should complete the Parent / Guardian Consent for a Minor to Receive Health Care Services form.
