The State University System of Florida requires all students born after December 31, 1956 to present documented proof of immunity to measles (rubeola) and German Measles (rubella) BEFORE they can register for classes. The student will provide immunization documents from other institutions/offices or the FGCU Immunization History Form at least 72 business hours PRIOR to class registration. The documents will be reviewed and determined complete or not by the immunization staff within 72 business hours after receiving them. This written document must be signed by a physician, a nurse practitioner or a registered nurse and must be mailed, sent via fax, or brought to Student Health Services. Phone calls from your physician are not acceptable. Visit the Student Health Services website for more information and the necessary forms required.
For students interested in living on campus, be sure to fill out housing forms early. Visit the Office of Housing and Residence Life website for more information on deadlines and the housing application process.
