Immunization information is required to be on file with the University Health Center for all students before the beginning of classes. Download your Health History Form and return it to the Office of Admissions before or during Orientation. All students (both residential and commuters) must complete this form.
HIPAA - The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal health information held by covered entities and gives patients an array of rights with respect to that information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the disclosure of personal health information needed for patient care and other important purposes.
Meningtitis Form - State of Georgia Regulations require that all colleges/universities provide detailed information concerning the risks associated with Meningococcal Meningitis to all students residing in campus housing. Therefore, all Reinhardt University students residing in on-campus housing, including all residence halls and apartments, are required to submit a Meningococcal Vaccination Certification Form. Download your Meningococcal Vaccination Certification Form and return it to the Student Health Center before or during Orientation.
