Immunization Requirements at Xavier University

Important announcement:  Welcome to the incoming Class of 2023, and new 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.  We are excited to be using a new platform through our partnership with Med+Proctor to handle all immunization records and compliance with them. Visit www.medproctor.com to register your new account, using your Xavier email address.  (Please wait to submit your immunization information until you have been assigned a Xavier email address.) Follow their instructions for completing this process. 

All 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.
Immunization Requirements
The following vaccines are required for all 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

Xavier University partners with MedProctor for the collection of all immunization records for all new freshman and transfer students. (Students enrolled in only online classes are exempt.) Students must register their Xavier email address at medproctor.com and complete their profile online. 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 criteria. 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 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.
