As a new student at Calvin University, you are required to submit your vaccination history to health services. To keep our campus healthy, certain vaccinations are required.

How to submit your vaccination history

You can track them down through:

  • Your family physician
  • Your high school or previous college/university
  • Your branch of military service
To submit your vaccination history:
  • Scan and upload your vaccination records electronically via our Secure Patient Portal
  • Mail or fax an official copy of your vaccination records to Health Services

Complete your vaccinations

We encourage you to meet with your primary provider to complete vaccinations prior to coming to Calvin University to receive the best financial coverage. If you would like to have your vaccines or blood titers completed at Health Services, please call us at (616) 526-6187 to schedule an appointment. We will bill your insurance for you, but cannot guarantee reimbursement. We strongly recommend contacting your insurance company prior to your visit here to confirm your beneifts and coverage at the Health Center. Bring your insurance card to every appointment.

International Students: Please wait to fulfill any requirements for vaccinations or tuberculosis testing until you arrive at Calvin University. These services are covered in full by Calvin’s Student Health Insurance Plan.


All requirements must be met by the deadline specified in new student correspondence from Health Services. Ideally, these are all met by the start of your incoming semester. Health Services does allow for a 30-day grace period, into the semester, before any fees or consequences are assessed. If you are not compliant by the deadline, you will be charged a $50, non-refundable, fee and your registration account will be put on hold. If a registration hold is placed, all requirements must be completely satisfied before this can be lifted.

Tuberculosis screening

If you fall into a high-risk group for tuberculosis, you must have a tuberculosis test completed. You may do this with your primary care provider, or at health services.
