Dear Bennett Belle:
We look forward to providing you with exemplary service at the Bennett College Student Health Center. The Student Health Center provides a variety of medical and other health services to our students. Prior to entering the College, each student is required to submit a report of her medical history, which must include a physical examination by a licensed physician and proof of required immunizations in accordance with the North Carolina Immunization Law, G.S. Article 6, Part 2.
The Center must have complete immunization records for each student prior to arriving at college including three Diphtheria Pertussis Tetanus (DTP Vaccines), one Tdap (Tetanus Booster)received within the last 10 years, three hepatitis B immunizations, two MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccines, Meningococcal (Meningitis Vaccine) and three Polio vaccinations, for students born after 1994. Effective Fall 2021, Bennett College added the COVID-19 vaccination to the list of required immunizations for student attendance. Each student is required to submit a report of her medical history signed by a licensed physician.
Bennett College allows for medical and religious exemptions only that have been notarized. No philosophical exemptions will be granted for mandatory vaccinations (COVID-19, MMR, DTP, TDAP, Meningitis).
Medical exemptions require a letter or statement on letterhead from your health care provider (MD, DO, NP, PA) indicating the clinically supported reason you should not receive the required vaccinations. We will not accept medical exemptions from chiropractors or naturopaths. Religious exemptions require a detailed written statement of personal beliefs AND a notarized letter from your religious leader/clergy person.
Additionally, the Bennett College Student Health Center requests the following medical forms which provide information that will help expedite health services, should the need arise. They include the Demographic, Emergency Contact and Insurance Form, Consent Disclosure Information, and a Verification and Authorization to Treat Form.
Please submit all forms to the Bennett College Health Center using the secure links below by August 1. You may also fax your information to (336) 517-2235. For more information, contact the student health center.
