NEW STUDENT HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Newly enrolled students are required to meet the following 3 health requirements by July 1 for fall semester, and by January 2 for spring semester. Students cannot register for a subsequent semester until all health requirements are complete.

  1. Enter immunization dates into the Online Student Health Portal (OSHP). Students can access the OSHP from their Door-to-Dordt checklist using their Dordt username and password. This step will provide students with the information needed to confirm that they have met the Dordt College Immunization Requirements.
     
  2. For verification purposes, submit a hard copy immunization record obtained from your healthcare provider or state’s public health immunization program. Copies of immunization documents must contain the student’s name and birthdate on all pages. Immunization records may be uploaded into the OSHP, faxed, or mailed to Campus Health Services; please do not email immunization documents. Campus Health is not responsible for documents sent to other offices. Please allow 2 weeks for verification of immunizations on the OSHP and Door-to-Dordt checklist.
     
  3. Complete the Health Information Form, submitted electronically from the student’s Door-to-Dordt account. This form contains a tuberculosis (TB) risk assessment, report of past medical history, and Authorization for Treatment (electronic student signature provides permission for students to receive care in Campus Health Services). Students under age 18 will be directed to the “Parental Consent for Treatment of a Minor” form; this form should be completed and submitted to Campus Health Services along with immunization records.

Please be sure you have received all required vaccines prior to coming to campus. Campus Health Services does not administer vaccinations. Students in need of immunizations when they arrive on campus will be referred to an off-campus provider at the cost of the student.

Immunization exemption forms will be provided only by request via phone at 712-722-6990, or email healthservices@dordt.edu. The director of Campus Health Services will review each request for exemption and follow up with the student or physician as necessary. The exemption form is part of the required entrance health requirements and must be completed before the July 1 deadline.
