New to UMW this Fall?
Health Information, Immunization and Tuberculosis Screening forms are required for full-time undergraduate students:
UMW Health History, Immunizations and TB Screening Forms are located under the forms section to the left. The Health Information form is to be completed by the student or guardian. The Immunization and Tuberculosis Screening sections need to be verified and signed by a healthcare provider. All forms need to be completed and submitted to the Student Health Center. If your completed forms are not received by August 1, 2014, your account will be placed on hold preventing you from registering for Spring 2015 classes. Please call (540) 654-1040 for questions.
All the information presented during the summer orientation is in this PDF handout SHC Summer Orientation 2014 – Handout.
