As a prerequisite to registration as a degree-seeking or non-degree-seeking student, FGCU requires all students born after December 31, 1956, to present documented proof of immunity to measles (Rubeola) and Rubella. All students also need to be vaccinated against meningitis and hepatitis B diseases or sign a waiver. Prior to initial registration, each student must submit a completed FGCU Immunization History Form to Student Health Services. Students are strongly urged to complete this requirement before attending Orientation because they cannot register for classes until doing so.

The following are acceptable proofs of immunization and vaccines:

  • Proof of two MMR or MMRV vaccinations received at least 28 days apart after 12 months of age; or
  • Proof of immunity by way of a blood test result (titer); or
  • Proof of meningitis and hepatitis B vaccines or sign a waiver (if over 18 years of age).

Questions immunizations may be directed to Student Health Services. The University reserves the right to refuse registration to any student whose health record or report of medical examination indicates the existence of a condition which may be harmful to members of the University community.
