New Student Requirements
Completion of the immunization form is mandatory and must be completed by a physician.
Prior to attending classes, each new student is required by North Carolina law to submit certification of immunization to the on-campus Student Health Services office, located at 1203 Rachel Carson Court.
These records, along with the Medical/Family history form may be mailed to us at: Guilford College Student Health Services 5800 West Friendly Ave, Greensboro, NC 27410. You may also fax 336.316.2184 or email this information to Susan Smith. If you have questions about immunizations or the health form, please call 336.316.2194.
International students are, in addition, required to have a physical and TB skin test. Students who fail to comply with this state law within 30 days of the start of the semester will be withdrawn from class.
Traditional students must have health insurance each semester and will be automatically enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare insurance plan for Guilford students, which is billed to your Guilford account. If you have one of the accepted insurances you may opt out of this plan by completing the online waiver. Please call the Business Office at 336.316.2142 for questions regarding insurance. Information about 2014-15 UnitedHealthcare Student Resources coverage is available here.
The following health insurance providers tend to be the most readily accepted by local health care providers:
Blue Cross / Blue Shield
Medcost – BAS
NC State Health Plan
Please review your policy to ensure you are adequately covered (this includes the determination of PPO/HMO status).
