All nursing students and all other full-time graduate students enrolling in on-campus programs are required to comply with mandatory health requirements which include providing proof of immunizations and a physical exam. Complete the required health forms (at the link below) and return them to the Wellness Center by August 1 for fall enrollment, and January 1 for spring enrollment. Failure to return the required forms may result in a loss of your course registration. For your security, medical records should be faxed (rather than e-mailed) to 315-792-7371. Online students (non-nursing) are exempt from this requirement.
