Students must complete a

Student Health Form

prior to coming to

Hardin-Simmons University. This form can be found on our website

at

www.hsutx.edu/student-life/health.

This form includes insurance

information, health history and immunization record. A copy of the

childhood immunization record may be submitted with the Health

Form. The immunization record includes two MMRs (Mumps, Measles,

Rubella Vaccine), the Varicella Vaccine or a statement of the student

having had the chickenpox disease, a Td or Tdap (Tetanus Diphtheria

Vaccine) within the past 10 years, the Hepatitis B series, Polio Vaccine,

and the state-mandated Meningitis Vaccine (within the five year period

prior to the first college class day). The new student under 22 years

of age has to show proof of having the Meningitis Vaccine before

registering for class. Exceptions to this would be a signed affidavit for

health reasons or conscientious objections. This information is on the

Hardin-Simmons University website under Bacterial Meningitis.

It would be beneficial to talk to your student before he or she leaves

home about the importance of a healthy diet, getting regular exercise

and getting enough sleep. Also, the most important thing a student can

do to prevent getting sick and prevent the spread of disease is good

hand-washing.

College can be stressful. If your student becomes overwhelmed with

class, please encourage him or her to discuss this with professors.

Counseling can help students during some stressful times. Encourage

your student to contact the nurse for assistance in seeking a counselor.
