International Student Immunization Requirements

*The university immunization submission platform is changing.*
  • Effective September 18, 2023 through October 15, MedProctor will not be available for students to upload immunization submissions.
    • If you have complete immunization records, upload them to MedProctor before September 18 to satisfy the university requirement.
    • If you need more time to get your required immunizations, you will need to wait until October 16 to upload a fully completed immunization form (General Population form) to the Bearcats Health App.
  • Starting October 16, all students will use the Bearcats Health App to submit immunization documents.
  • Due to this platform transition, the immunization deadline has been extended to November 1, 2023.

You are required to complete a MANDATORY health screening upon your arrival. These screenings will take place at University Health Services, located in the Lindner Athletic Center. This screening is required for admission to classes. The health screening includes three parts: UHS Registration Form, Tuberculosis (TB) screening, and proof of required immunizations.

Part One: University Health Services Registration

Part Two: TB Screening requires a blood test to rule out tuberculosis.

  • Step 1: Call University Health Services at (513) 556-2564 to schedule your TB screening. You must have your M# available when you call. Appointments are scheduled by phone only. Appointments cannot be scheduled in person.
  • Step 2: When you call to make your appointment, you will be given instructions to sign up for your UC Health electronic medical record (MyChart). This is MANDATORY.
  • Step 3: You will receive communications regarding your TB screening appointment through your UC Health electronic medical record (MyChart).
  • Step 4: Please eCheck-In for your visit in advance.

To sign up for your UC Health MyChart account now, use this link:

Please use “000-00-0000” when asked for your social security number.

We will accept a TB blood test from your home country that was completed in the three months prior the start of classes. Bring these records with you to your TB screening appointment.

**Failure to complete your TB screening by September 11, 2023 will result in you being reported to the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards for further evaluation based on your potential violation of the Student Code of Conduct.**

Part Three: Proof of Required Immunizations

  • Required immunizations are listed below.
  • Take the UC Standardized Immunization form (PDF) to your healthcare provider to complete and sign.
  • Respond to the invitation sent to your official UC email address from MedProctor and register for a MedProctor account. You do not have to pay for this process.
  • Prior to your arrival to UC, upload your completed immunization form (PDF) to MedProctor, showing proof of all university-required immunizations.
  • If you have immunization questions, they can be addressed at the time of your TB screening appointment. Please bring your immunization forms to your appointment for a nurse to review.

Your required immunizations include:

Hepatitis B: 3 Hepatitis B vaccine doses OR 2 Heplisav-B doses OR Hepatitis B surface antibody (HBSAB) titer*

MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella): 2 vaccine doses OR MMR titer*
