    Immunization and Medical Records Verification for New Students

    For the safety of our campus community, all students are required to have certain up-to-date immunizations before arriving on campus. As such, all new students must verify their immunization and medical histories through the Med+Pass system.


    Failure to comply with Med+Pass records verification , including verification of all required immunizations and TB screening/testing, will result in an inability to register for classes and participate in other pre-fall activities such as athletics, band, cheerleader tryouts or practice, or residence hall check-in.

    Medical history information and immunization/TB records MUST be submitted through the Med+Pass system at least one month prior to your intended enrollment date:
    • Spring Term: Due by December 1
    • Summer Term: Due by May 1
    • Fall Term: Due by August 1 (or by summer orientation date)
    We recommend having everything verified prior to your attendance at UWA Orientation, as you will not be allowed to register for classes without being cleared though Med+Pass.

    • Meningitis Vaccine: Must show proof of one dose after age 16

    The University of West Alabama Student Health Service program is operated through an agreement with Anderson's Family Medical Center.  Dr. James Robinson's office is located adjacent to the UWA campus, on Wise Circle, and is accessible from Hwy 11 North.  Students may go to the clinic on a drop-in basis or call for an appointment at (205) 652-5778.  As the University physician, Dr. Robinson sees students regarding routine matters.

    After normal office hours, and in case of emergencies, students needing medical attention should go to Hill Hospital in York.  The University will not be able to provide transportation to the hospital, but will arrange for ambulance service, if requested.  The student will be responsible for the expense for all hospital services and ambulance transportation, if applicable.  On-campus residents should contact a resident assistant or their hall director if there is a medical emergency.  The Housing staff member will contact campus police, and the campus police office will determine whether an ambulance should be called.

    A student who has family health insurance coverage should be prepared to provide documentation of such coverage in the event he/she requires medical attention other than that provided by the University. 

    Students with musculoskeletal and orthopedic injuries may use the services provided by the UWA Athletic Training and Sports Medicine Center located in the Homer Field House.
