New Student Requirements

Each new student accepted for admission must submit, prior to registration, a completed Immunization form provided by UCF Health Services. The AdobeReader Immunization Policy and Form may be downloaded from the web AdobeReader here. All students, regardless of age, must complete and return the Immunization Form to be reviewed for compliance. This includes documented proof of immunity to Measles (Rubeola) and German Measles (Rubella), and either proof of immunization against Meningitis and Hepatitis B, or a signed waiver declining these two vaccines.

You will NOT be able to register for classes without completing this requirement. Submit your Immunization Form and documented proof to UCF Health Services prior to your orientation date so that you may register for classes during your orientation session. We recommend you start this process early.

Completed forms may be faxed or mailed to Health Services. Sorry, no emails accepted!

Meningitis and Hepatitis B
Meningitis & Hepatitis B Information

UCF is required to inform you of two potential health risks: Meningitis and Hepatitis B.
Meningitis is an infection of the fluid of the spinal cord and brain, caused by a virus or bacteria and usually spread through exchange of respiratory and throat secretions (i.e. coughing, kissing). Bacterial meningitis can be quite severe and may result in brain damage, hearing loss, learning disability or even death. A vaccine is currently available for one of the most severe forms of bacterial meningitis, meningococcus. This vaccine effectively provides immunity for most forms of meningococcus; there is no vaccine for the less severe viral-type meningitis. (More Information - Educational Links)

Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver caused primarily by contact with blood and other body fluids from infected persons. Hepatitis B vaccine can provide immunity against hepatitis B infection for persons at significant risk, including people who have received blood products containing the virus through transfusions, drug use, tattoos, or body piercing; people who have sex with multiple partners or with someone who is infected with the virus; and health care workers and people exposed to biomedical waste.

For complete and specific information about the required vaccines and any medical contradictions, carefully review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — Vaccine Information Statements.

Medical Exemptions
If a student has certain medical conditions and/or contradictions to a vaccine, please contact our office by calling 407.823.3707 , or email us, to request an exemption.
