Please keep in mind that while we do not require a physical examination, we still strongly encourage having one completed with your primary care provider prior to your start at Loyola. We advise you to make an appointment with them as soon as possible so that you can also receive any necessary vaccinations in order to ensure your health profile is completed by the required deadline. Please note- Failure to comply with the pre-entrance health requirements prior to your arrival on campus will block you from entering campus housing and may interrupt your student experience. 

Immunizations required of all students:

Our immunization requirements follow the guidelines set by the American College Health Association and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Maryland law requires that all students living in campus housing receive the Meningitis (ACWY) vaccine. 

  • COVID-19 vaccine and booster - COVID antibody testing will NOT be accepted at this time 
  • Two doses of MMR Vaccine - MMR antibody blood titer tests will be accepted as proof of immunity in lieu of vaccinations. Please submit a copy of lab results with your completed health profile information online. 
  • One dose Tdap (Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis) within the past ten years
    • (If last Tdap >10 years ago, student needs a either a Td or Tdap booster before coming to campus)
  • Meningitis ACWY vaccine (at age 16 or older)- required by Maryland State law for all new students

    Vaccination is important for college students to reduce the risk for potentially fatal meningococcal disease. Studies have shown that college students who live in residence halls or dormitories have a slightly higher risk of meningococcal disease.

  • Influenza Vaccine - received annually, preferably in October *Due November 28, 2022*
