Requirements for New Students

Physical examinations

Physicals are not required for all students. If you are a student-athlete, please contact your trainer, coach or the Department of Athletics for requirements.


Virginia law requires that all first-time, full-time undergraduate and graduate students provide documentation of the required immunizations against communicable diseases, including meningitis. This documentation must be signed by a licensed health professional or health facility and sent or delivered to the Office of the Registrar. You will not be able to participate in early registration until your immunization record is received.
