Immunization Requirements           

 Patient Portal

ALL students residing and attending class on-campus must fully satisfy Winthrop’s immunization requirements by July 15th for Fall and December 1st for Spring. Incoming residential students may not sign up for move-in until immunization compliance is met. Failure to meet immunization compliance by the first day of classes will result in an immunization hold and students may incur a non-refundable $100.00 Non-Compliance Fee applied to your student account. This fee is avoidable.


To complete the Winthrop University Immunization requirements, the first step is to create a Patient Portal account using either Firefox or Safari browsers. You must complete the required forms, enter your immunization dates, and upload your immunization documentation. Students who received their vaccines in South Carolina may already see their immunization data pre-populated in the Portal. It is the student's responsibility to ensure all required data is provided and forms are completed.

The attached Immunization Information sheet (pdf - 170 KB), gives detailed directions and information on the CDC requirements and recommendations for vaccines.


  Paper documents will NOT be accepted. Documentation must be

uploaded and forms completed in the Patient Portal.   

Winthrop University requires all students born on or after January 1, 1957 to provide proof of immunity to:

  • Measles (Rubeola), German Measles (Rubella), and Mumps (Covered by MMR vaccine).
    • Two valid doses of MMR (or the equivalent) or blood levels showing immunity are required.  
  • All students must have a Tetanus vaccination within the last ten years.
  • The Meningococcal vaccine requirement can be completed by uploading documentation of the vaccine or by reading and signing the Meningitis waiver. The CDC recommends a booster be given if meningitis vaccine was received before age 16.
  • All students must complete the Tuberculosis Screening.
  • Medical and religious exemptions are allowed by law.
  • Students attending a class that meets on campus for 2 weeks or less throughout the semester are exempt from the immunization requirements.
