First Year, International, and Transfer Student Immunizations
Welcome to all new incoming 1st Year, Transfer, and International students! You will need to have an updated, physician-certified immunization record as part of your requirements as a student at Xavier University. PLEASE DO NOT MAIL YOUR IMMUNIZATION RECORD TO THE UNIVERSITY. Med+Proctor handles all immunization records and compliance for Xavier University.
The following topics are action items to meet the health requirements at our university.
- Student Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver information - mandatory
- Immunization Compliance - mandatory: Xavier University is partnering with Med+Proctor for our immunization compliance and verification process. Currently, the Med+Proctor platform focuses on automating the immunization compliance process for incoming students at colleges and universities. Disease outbreaks can happen several times a year on university campuses, so creating a more efficient way to verify immunity before the start of each semester has never been more important.
All new First Year, International and Transfer students must submit the Required Proof of Immunization prior to their first semester on campus. This only needs to be submitted once. Please watch this video for full details about this requirement and the necessary steps needed to reach compliance.
The following vaccines are required for all full-time undergraduate students, and all International students taking classes on campus at Xavier University:
- MMR: Two (2) doses are required at least 28 days apart, where dose 1 was given at 12 months or later, and dose 2 given at least 28 days after the first dose was administered.
- Meningococcal Conjugate (ACWY): One dose on or after 16th birthday. Please review this brochure regarding Meningococcal A among this student population.
- Hepatitis B: Three (3) doses of Hepatitis B OR lab report confirming immunity.
The following vaccines are recommended for all students taking classes on campus at Xavier University:
- Varicella (chickenpox)
- Meningitis B
- Seasonal Influenza (flu)
Xavier University partners with MedProctor for the collection of all immunization records for all students. (Students enrolled in only online classes are exempt.) Students should take the MedProctor Immunization Certificate to their medical provider to complete the required documentation. Alternatively, students may upload a copy of their complete immunization record, so long as it is signed by their medical provider. MedProctor also provides medical and reasons of conscience waivers for individuals meeting either criterion. These are available for download within the student profile "documents" section.
Students or families with questions about this process are encouraged to contact MedProctor directly, utilizing the "live chat" feature they offer. You may also contact 513-745-3041 with specific questions regarding Xavier's requirements.
Students who do not have a "verified" status on file at MedProctor may incur a hold on their ability to schedule for their next semester of classes at Xavier. We encourage all students to upload the required documentation prior to the first day of classes. Students must watch their Xavier email account for important communications regarding their status with MedProctor.
