Health Requirements

FOR NEW STUDENTS - All first year and transfer students must submit a completed physical form with an up-to-date Immunization record by June 30, 2022.

Physicals done within the last 12 months are acceptable. Student Health Services and Athletics utilize the same forms so only 1 physical is needed. Please provide both offices a copy of physical form if you are an athlete.

VACCINATION EXEMPTIONS: Deadline to submit Aug 1, 2022. Neumann University follows the American College Health Association (ACHA), the Pennsylvania State Mandatory Vaccination Code, and the CDC’s recommendations for immunization compliance guidelines. For the safety of all students, immunizations are mandatory. Students may be exempted from the immunization requirements if there is a medical contraindication or if the student’s religion prohibits immunizations. Per Pennsylvania State Mandatory Vaccination Code, students may request the following vaccination exemptions:

  1. Medical exemption: To obtain a medical exemption, students must submit a signed statement indicating specific medical contraindication from a Medical Doctor (MD), Doctor of Osteopath (DO), Nurse Practitioner (NP), or a Physician, Assistant (PA). The statement must indicate why each required vaccine is medically contraindicated. Please attach the medical documentation to the form.
  2. Religious exemption: To obtain a religious exemption, students must submit a signed statement from a clergy member describing the student’s religious beliefs and why those beliefs prohibit the required vaccination. Please attach the religious or other similar belief documentation to the form.
