Health Center

The Health Center strives to support the institutional mission of the University. The Health Center staff helps individuals achieve their optimal level of good health so they can face challenges that enable them to lead fulfilling lives, obtain meaningful work and be responsible citizens.

The Health Center focuses on health promotion, health protection, disease prevention and clinical care. The main purpose of the Health Center is to provide medical care for students who have short-term illnesses and injuries. Good health contributes to the productivity and success of students and enables them to reach their academic, social, athletic, career and personal goals in life.

Forms

Please use this link to access to Health Center Forms that all students are required to submit.

Health Requirements Prior to Arrival

All students are required to submit completed immunization records as well as other health information forms to the Student Health Center prior to their arrival on campus. The completed forms are mandatory. It is recommended that all students have a physical exam by their personal physician prior to the start of the school year, however, it is mandatory for anyone who plans to participate in athletics at the University of Mount Union.  More information will be sent to athletes by the Athletic Department. 

The forms also include questions about Tuberculosis and the possible need for Mantoux (Tuberculosis) skin testing.

Verification of the following immunizations is required: Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis (Tdap) booster within the past ten years, and two doses of M.M.R. (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella). Dose 1 given at age 12-15 months or later and Dose 2 given at age 4-6 years or later, and at least one month after the first dose.

To reduce and eliminate vaccine-preventable diseases on campus we support the recommendations of the American College Health Association Vaccine-Preventable Disease Task Force based on guidelines consistent with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommendations. Those recommendations include consideration of Varicella immunization, Hepatitis B immunizations, and Meningococcal vaccine among others. Information about these diseases and vaccines can be found on the CDC web page.

Due to the identification of certain factors that may place college students at increased risk for meningococcal disease, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the American College Health Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents and students be educated about meningococcal disease and the benefits of vaccination. The recommendations further state that "College freshman that want to reduce their risk for meningococcal disease should either be administered vaccine (by a health care provider) or directed to a site where the vaccine is available." For more information about meningitis visit the website of the Meningitis Foundation of America.

The completed forms should be mailed to the Student Health Center as soon as possible.  They must be received prior to the start of classes.  Please include only the Health Center forms in your envelope and address them to:
