Immunizations and Insurance Compliance

Pursuant to Florida Board of Governors Regulation 6.001(9), prior to registration, each student accepted for admission at Florida Atlantic University must submit a signed FAU Immunization Form. Florida Atlantic University requires documented proof of immunizations to Measles and Rubella. In addition, pursuant to Florida Board of Governors Regulations 6.007, effective July 1, 2008, all new matriculating students must also provide documentation of vaccinations against Meningococcal Meningitis and Hepatitis B or provide a signed waiver for each declined vaccination.

In order to be considered official, the Immunization Form must contain an authorized signature AND an office stamp. In lieu of an authorized signature and stamp, copies of official records may be attached to the Immunization Form. Official records must include the student’s name and front cover of all documents. We reserve the right to interpret the validity of all documents.

Immunization Form


Complete the Immunization Form

All students must complete the demographic information at the top of the form and sign in Section D.

Students under the age of 18 must also have a parent/guardian sign in Section D.

Students born after 1956 must have Sections A and B completed by a physician if official immunization documents are not attached to the form.

Students (or their parent/guardian if the student is under the age of 18) must sign in Section B if they do not have documentation of vaccination against Meningococcal Meningitis and/or Hepatitis B and elect to waive either or both of those vaccines.
