Health and Counseling FAQ

Q: Why do I need to provide my measles immunization dates?
A: It is required by Oregon State law.

Q: What if I can't find my immunization records?
A: If you were born prior to 1957 you are exempt and do not have to provide dates.
A: If you were born between 1957 and 1970 and can provide one immunization date given after 1989, please contact the Health & Counseling Center to document this information.
A: All others need to provide two dose dates. If you don't have two dates you can obtain a titer, which is a blood draw to determine if you are immune to measles or not. You can enter the date of the titer on the online form and submit the form. When you receive the results of your titer, please forward that documentation to the Health & Counseling Center.

Q: Why do I need to provide proof of medical insurance?
A: George Fox University requires all full-time students (those taking 8 hours or more) to carry medical insurance and provide proof of coverage annually. Students who do not document medical insurance online either prior to or at the time of registration are automatically enrolled in the university's Student Major Medical Insurance Plan. Information on this plan can be obtained from the Health and Counseling Services Web site. Cost of this coverage is about $1,598 for 12 months. Coverage is available for students only and is not available for spouses or dependents.

Q: Where can I get my prescriptions filled?
A: At any pharmacy.
