Medical History and Emergency Contact Information
All inbound international and exchange students and scholars are required to submit the Medical History – Emergency Contact Information Form following issuance of the I-20 or DS-2019.
Traveling to a different culture and environment can pose emotional and physical challenges. It is important that you discuss with a medical provider any past, current or potential medical conditions to prepare you for your study program at UMF and assist you with any necessary accommodations.
The information requested in this form is necessary to identify any medical precautions that are recommended and to provide critical medical information in the event that a health problem or other emergency arises while you are studying at UMF. The information provided will remain confidential, reviewed only by the Office of Global Education and medical personnel in case of an emergency while on your program.
After you have completed this form in its entirety, you must meet with your health care provider to review your information, discuss any specific needs you may have, and obtain the requisite signature indicating that you have received this counseling and whether there are any precautions or accommodations necessary for you to participate in your study program at UMF.
COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
In addition to COVID-19 vaccination requirements for entry into the United States, the University of Maine System also has a COVID-19 vaccination and booster requirement. Refer to the Together for Maine website for the most up to date guidance.
The University of Maine at Farmington requires the submission of official immunization records prior to attendance using the Immunization Form. This applies to all international students, as well as scholars, who will live in a campus residence hall.
Maine State Law requires all degree-seeking students and full-time, non-degree students born after December 31, 1956, to provide the following proof of immunization:
- One (1) dose of Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td or Tdap) received within the last ten (10) years.
- Two (2) doses of Measles (Rubeola), Mumps, and Rubella (German Measles) received after (not on) the first birthday. If measles immunization was done prior to 1968, you must provide proof it was done with a live virus.
*Titre tests with positive results for immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella are accepted as long as they are signed or stamped and clearly indicate immunity to all three diseases.
Official Immunization Records
Immunization Form must indicate the date of immunization and is REQUIRED to be signed and stamped by a Healthcare Provider. Students should email the completed Immunization Form to Lynne Eustis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Required Tuberculosis Screening
Submit the TB Screening form to Lynne Eustis at email@example.com. If you answer NO to all questions, no further action will be needed. If you answer YES to any question, you will need to have a TB Screening test at the UMF Student Health Center upon arrival, or provide documentation of a negative TB test screening result.
Visit this UMF Student Health Center website for a list of recommended immunizations. International students who have received one or more of the recommended immunizations should email documentation to Lynne Eustis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
