New Student Requirements

NEW STUDENT REQUIREMENTS

“Congratulations! You have been accepted into Toccoa Falls College!” Words you have been waiting to hear. The next steps to get ready for check-in day are before you.

registrationAmong other things there are health requirements to take care of.  If you are taking 6 or more credits on campus in a semester these are tasks you must complete. Attention to these items before arriving on campus will greatly expedite your check-in process. First, complete the Medical History Form (For a printable Medical History Form go to: Printable Medical History Form 2018)  Be prepared with your immunization record since there are some important vaccines required before admittance to TFC. Most of these are common childhood immunizations and it is likely that you have already received most if not all of them. The required immunizations are:

  • Hepatitis B – 3 doses
  • Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) – 2 doses
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox) – 2 doses (unless you have history of the chicken pox illness)
  • Tetanus booster within the last 10 years
  • Meningitis vaccine – This is not required but STRONGLY RECOMMENDED especially if you are planning to live on campus. If you choose not to receive the meningitis vaccine you MUST read, sign and turn in a Meningitis Waiver 2018.

IMPORTANT: If you answer “yes” to either of the Tuberculosis Screening Questions on the Medical History Form, please make arrangements to have a TB test and submit a copy of your results to Student Health Services. If you have a positive TB test, please see your local healthcare provider for follow up and submit documentation of this evaluation.

If you will be under 18 on check-in day, please have your parent/guardian complete the Medical (Parental) Consent Form.

*Student Health Services abides by recommendations and guidelines on immunizations and health requirements by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices (ACIP), the American College Health Association (ACHA) and the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.
