Requirements for New Students

All new students must have had a physical examination within the past year of enrolling at Maritime. A health-care provider must complete the required forms.

All students must have had a tuberculosis screening within six months of entry into Maritime College.

New students must also provide immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. If a student has a medical condition that prohibits MMR vaccinations, or religious beliefs that prohibit immunization, that student is encouraged to submit blood titer results to identify their immune status. If a student's religion prevents them from identifying their immune status, the student must submit a written request for a waiver with documentation of sincerely held beliefs. If the student is not documented as immune, the student may be excluded from campus in the event of a measles, mumps or rubella outbreak.

Athletes and students applying to complete cadet-shipping assignments must also be tested for sickle cell anemia.
