    Incoming Students

    Welcome all incoming 2015-2016 students! We would like to take a moment to inform you of our Immunization Requirements. In order to attend Undergraduate classes here at Seattle University, we require you to submit proof of  the MMR and Hepatitis B series, as well as a current Tetanus shot (given in the past 10 years). You may submit records to our office by email, fax, mail or if you are in the area, you may drop them off.  You may also submit your immunizations using the Online Student Health Immunization Form.  For our contact information, please see our 'About Us' tab on the left side of this page. 

    Also, the University requires Full-Time Undergraduate students (ONLY) to have health insurance. If you already have private insurance and would like to waive-out of the Student Health Insurance for the 2015-2016 year or if you would like to enroll in the insurance, please follow this link Student Health Insurance Waiver. If you have any questions regarding the waiver/insurance acceptance process or information regarding the policy, please contact Wells Fargo at 1 (800) 853-5899.

    Ebola: Traveling from West Africa 

    With the recent outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, many questions have come up regarding the risk of infection for travelers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued a Level 3 Travel Warning advising against nonessential travel to any of the above countries. In addition, the CDC is continuing its screening and education efforts on the ground to prevent sick passengers from traveling from the affected countries. 

    If you’re traveling from West Africa

    The CDC asks those returning from affected areas to be aware of any change in their health. Those who have not had direct contact with infected body fluids, animals, or contaminated objects, should monitor their health for a minimum of 10 days and look for the following symptoms:
    • Fever 
    • Headache 
    • Joint and muscle aches 
    • Weakness 
    • Diarrhea 
    • Vomiting 
    • Stomach pain 
    • Lack of appetite 

    Symptoms can appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure with 8-10 days being the most common. Anyone who suspects they were exposed should monitor their health for 21 days post exposure and continue to monitor for the following symptoms. If you recently traveled from the affected areas and find that you’ve developed any of the above symptoms, contact your health care provider immediately—even if it’s just a fever.  SU faculty and staff should contact their private health care provider while students can either contact the health center at 206-296-6300 or their private health care provider. Tell your provider about your recent travel and potential exposure before you go to your provider’s office or emergency room to prevent potential transmission to others.
