Winthrop University: Immunization Requirements

Health and Counseling Services

Immunization Requirements

All students attending class on campus are required to submit the Winthrop University Health and Counseling Services Immunization Form before registering.

Immunization Non-Compliance Fee beginning Fall 2017 Semester
In an effort to accomplish 100% Immunization Compliance for the health and safety of our Winthrop community, a non-refundable $50.00 Immunization Non-Compliance Fee was implemented in Fall 2017. This fee is avoidable. ALL on-campus (not on-line only) students must satisfy all immunization requirements by the first day of classes or this non-refundable $50.00 Non-Compliance Fee will be applied to your student account.
* Online-only students who choose to come to Health and Counseling Services for in-person services must meet eligibility which includes complying with the immunization requirement prior to coming in."

Please read the attached Immunization Information sheet before completing the Immunization Form.
