STUDENT HEALTH CENTER

The Student Health Center, located on the top floor of Schoenfeld Hall (above the Brickyard Cafe), offers complete primary health care services including laboratory services. It is staffed by a Registered Nurse and a Nurse Practitioner who is authorized and licensed to make medical diagnoses, prescribe medications, and perform physical exams for both women and men. The Health Center is overseen by a collaborating physician who is available for consultations and referrals.

IMMUNIZATION AND PHYSICAL EXAM REQUIREMENTS

All students (full-time and part-time) born after January 1, 1957, are required by New York State Health Law #2165 law to demonstrate proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. Proof of immunity is defined as two (2) doses of MMR or two doses (2) of measles and one (1) each of rubella and mumps. Documentation of required immunizations is a one-time requirement* and must be provided as soon as possible upon the student’s acceptance and decision to attend the college.

*NO STUDENT MAY REGISTER OR ATTEND CLASSES UNTIL THIS REQUIREMENT IS MET

In addition, New York State Health Law #2167 mandates that all students receive full disclosure regarding meningococcal meningitis disease.

Students living on campus MUST show documentation of having received the meningococcal meningitis vaccine or they will NOT be allowed to register for classes.

Students who do not reside on campus may waive the vaccine by signing the bottom of the disclosure form found in the health packet. It is strongly advised that athletes, whether or not residing on campus, receive the vaccine. 

Students are NOT fully registered until the college receives a completed medical form and required immunization records. The physical exam is a one-time requirement of all full-time students except intercollegiate student-athletes. Athletes must have a physical every year prior to their participation in intercollegiate practice or competition.

If you are a newly accepted student to Concordia, the proper health form for your program will be sent to you with your acceptance letter. You will need to submit the completed form with your tuition deposit. You may also contact the Office of Admissions and the forms will be mailed to you.

HEALTH INSURANCE

All students are required to have their own comprehensive health and hospitalization insurance that is valid for use in New York State.

Those who do NOT provide evidence* of having insurance prior to the beginning of classes will be required to purchase the College-arranged policy.

*Evidence requires the submission of an online waiver or enrollment election through the college-plan’s website that will be provided before the start of classes.

Brochures with information on the cost of the annual premium are sent to full-time students and change each year.

Additional information is also available at the Campus Health Center located on the 2nd floor of Shoenfeld Hall.
