Health and Immunization Requirements

student health

Medical services in the United States are not nationalized. Costs for doctors' services and hospitals may be more expensive than in your home country. Longwood requires that you subscribe to a health insurance plan before arriving. That policy must provide similar coverage in the U.S.

Every student must have a health record on file. This record includes immunizations for Measles, German Measles, Rubella, Polio, Diphtheria, Mumps, Tetanus, and a Tuberculosis skin test (PPD) within the past year, which are required by Virginia law. Students may not be able to register for classes without complying with these immunizations. A chest x-ray may also be required for tuberculosis screening.

For additional information regarding health insurance or immunization requirements contact: Student Health Services, Longwood University, Farmville, Virginia 23909, U.S.A. or e-mail: studenthealth@longwood.edu.
