International students

In preparing for your arrival to Aurora University, please take a moment and review the following information required to be on file in the Wellness Center PRIOR to your arrival.  All international students are required to complete both sides of our Student Health/Immunization Record form.  The front side provides the Wellness Center with information about your general health, and the back side provides information about your immunization history required by the State of Illinois College Immunization Code (77 ILL. Adm. Code 694) and Aurora University.  When completing the immunization history section pay close attention to the detailed immunization requirement listed below, as failure to provide all required information could result in delay with your registration.
