Many students find it easier to gather their own records, because it saves them doctor’s office visits and associated fees. Some students are short a shot or two, and will have to visit their doctors for shots anyway. If you are missing shots, please enter the dates that you do have on the HealthWeb form as described above, print the form, and bring it with you to the doctor. Your doctor can then update the dates for your missing shots, date, sign, and stamp your form, and forward the hard copy to the Student Health Center Immunization Compliance office.

If you have no records at all, you’ll need to visit your healthcare provider to receive the required immunizations. Have your doctor provide you with a complete record that shows the date of your immunizations, enter the dates into the HealthWeb form as described above, and mail, fax, or hand-deliver a paper copy of the complete record to the Student Health Center Immunization Compliance Office.

Tuberculosis (Tb) Screening (International Students and non-U.S. citizens only)
If you are either an international student or a non-U.S. citizen, you must have a tuberculin (PPD) test administered by a NC State University acceptable medical facility within the 12 months preceding the first day of classes. PPD readings must be stated in MM in duration.

We do not accept the results of PPD tests or chest x-rays completed in medical facilities outside the United States. You may wait and have these test(s) done after you arrive at NC State University. Student Health Services can perform a blood test to detect Tb bacteria infection. If you receive this test at the Student Health Center, and have health insurance coverage under the University-sponsored Health Insurance Plan, your health insurance policy will cover the cost of the test if given after the effective insurance date. If you need this this test done please call 919-515-2563 to make an appointment once you are on campus.

Complete the Parental Consent for Treatment Form (Students under the age of 18 only)
If you are under the age of 18, your parent or guardian should download and complete the Parental Consent for Treatment Form. You may then mail, fax or hand-deliver the form to the Student Health Center.

Adjusting to College

First year college students formulate expectations about college life long before they leave home. Some young adults look forward to college, eager to experience more freedom and adventure. Others may be enthusiastic initially but then discover that the experience falls short of their expectations when they don’t feel happy, comfortable, or secure in their new environment. Still others know that leaving home will be difficult and therefore dread the thought of leaving for college. No matter what his or her expectations, nearly every student encounters obstacles he or she didn’t anticipate during the transition to college. Even positive life changes produce stress, and certainly the changes leaving home demands can lead to feelings of sadness, loneliness and worry. These feelings are typical and part of the developmental transition to college.

Immunization Compliance

Proof of Immunizations
North Carolina public law
requires that you submit proof of your immunizations to the Student Health Center within 30 days of your acceptance at NC State University. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services answers questions about college and university immunization requirements. Within 30 days of your acceptance to the university, you must submit your Immunization Records both in paper form and online at HealthWeb.

If you will be under the age of eighteen on the first day of the semester, you must have a parent or guardian sign a Consent for Treatment form. Please do not download or forward copies of health forms you may find elsewhere online. Records must be legible and include your name and date of birth on each page, the name of the official source providing the records (e.g. a doctor’s office or school), and must be in English at the time of submission.

Send hard copy proof of immunizations to:
Attention: Immunizations Department

Fax: 1-888-972-4149

Tuberculin (PPD) Test for International Students and Non-U.S. Citizens 
In the 12-month period before the first day of classes, both international students and non-U.S. citizens must have a tuberculin (PPD) test administered in a U.S. facility. Tuberculin (PPD) test results must be stated in millimeters. Nil or negative is not acceptable. Permanent residents in possession of green cards are exempt from the Tuberculin (PPD) test requirement.

Vaccination Against Meningococcal Disease
Although NC State University does not require its students to be vaccinated against meningococcal disease, we recommend the vaccine for incoming freshmen who will live in residence halls.

Exceptions to North Carolina Immunization Regulations
Regulations do not apply to

  • Students classified as “non-degree seeking,” “distance education,” or “unclassified;”
  • Students registered in off-campus courses only;
  • Students attending night or weekend classes only; or
  • Students taking a course load of four (4) credit hours or fewer and residing off-campus.

Consequences for Not Providing Proof of Immunization
