Requirements for New Students

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

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

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

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