Medical History and Immunizations
Students attending on-campus course(s) with the Troy campus (T01 location) of Troy University are required to complete the Student Medical History Record and present verification of required immunization dates before registering for classes. Two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine are required for students born after December 31, 1956. Also a tuberculin skin test (PPD) is required within the last 12 months. Domestic students must have a negative reading of 15mm or less and international students must have a reading of 10mm or less. Students with a positive skin test reading must have a chest X-Ray. Positive chest X-Rays are referred to the University Physicians.
In the event that a student cannot provide required medical documentation at the time of registration, Student Health Services may issue a temporary medical clearance which enables a student to register for classes with the understanding that he or she must provide required medical records within two weeks following registration. Students who do not provide missing documentation will have a restriction placed on their account and will be unable to register for future terms with the Troy campus until required information is provided to Student Health Services. The MMR vaccination can be administered at Student Health Services for a fee of $85.00, plus an administration fee. The PPD vaccination can also be administered for a fee of $17, plus an administration fee.
International students applying to Troy University and seeking a student VISA, regardless of home location, will be required to complete the Student Medical History Record as above with verification of two doses of MMR vaccine and in addition, submit evidence that active tuberculosis is not present. A negative (less than 10 mm) PPD or a negative chest X-Ray within one year of application will constitute acceptable evidence. All students with positive results will be referred to Troy Regional Medical Center for a chest X-Ray at the student's expense.
