Complete Longwood Health Requirements

All international students are required to hold valid medical insurance for their entire stay at Longwood University. If you are already covered by an international health insurance policy, please contact the Center for Global Engagement to determine if your plan is sufficient or if additional insurance is required. Students without existing medical insurance should purchase the "Budget" or "Select" insurance plans from International Student Insurance. Upon arrival at Longwood University, you will be required to present proof of your insurance coverage.

All students must also present a completed Immunization Record upon arrival. Under Virginia law, all students must undergo screening for tuberculosis, as well as immunizations for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, and tetanus. Meningitis and hepatitis B immunizations are also required; however, you may sign waivers for meningitis and hepatitis B if you choose not to receive these two immunizations. The blank form, which you should complete along with your healthcare provider, and more information can be found at Student Health.

Please Note: Students without complete immunization records will not be permitted to register for classes.
