Vaccination Requirements

The MOST IMPORTANT aspect of finalizing your preparation for arriving at the University of Evansville is completing your health and immunization card. Public health laws safeguarding group living are very strict. Without proper medical/health documentation, admittance to the University is prohibited. The cost of a medical examination, inoculations and a TB test is expensive in the United States and must be paid by the student. Having these requirements completed by you and your family physician (doctor) at home will help you avoid added complications. It is important that you bring your completed health card with you. You must have the following immunizations:

Two Measles, Mumps, Rubella vaccinations (MMR), a Tetanus shot within the last 10 years. The State of Indiana requires all students to receive a TB skin test in the United States. You will receive one on campus for a $10 fee.

NOTE: If you do not have your physical examination, vaccinations completed before you arrive, you will be required to do so at your cost before you can register for classes. Please plan accordingly.

Paying the Bill

Your acceptance packet includes an estimated invoice for your first session. Before you register for classes, you must pay your expenses; therefore, we recommend that you wire your funds directly to the University of Evansville before your arrive. Please indicate your name and UE identification number, which you will find on the invoice.
