In the overall scope of student development, health care is a vital element for physical development and well-being. Because Chaminade University does not have a health center on campus, we offer free alternative means of transportation for residence students to and from several local public clinics and area hospitals. Please visit https://studentaffairs.chaminade.edu/counseling-center/health-services/ for more information.
Chaminade supports health requirements that complement the goals of maintaining a healthy, safe campus. These requirements are based upon laws of the State of Hawaii and therefore are strictly enforced. Failure to comply will result in being prohibited from registering for classes and/or moving into residence halls.
The following information is required:
1. Day Undergraduate Student Health Form: available online through the Chaminade Portal under “Student Forms”. Please follow the guidelines provided therein.
2. A Negative Tuberculin (TB) Risk Screen, Negative Test (TB skin, test, T-Spot or Quanitferon Gold In-Tube) or Positive TB test and Negative Chest X-ray administered within 12 months of attending State of Hawaii postsecondary schooling OR on/after the 16th birthday. The lab results of this test must be signed by an MD, DO, APRN, or PA with a note certifying immunity. TB clearance not needed for students taking classes entirely online and who do not anticipate ever taking classes on any of the University campuses or satellite programs.
3. Proof of immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella with one of the following:
a. Records showing dates for a series of two doses of the MMR Vaccine
b. Positive MMR blood titers (blood test). The lab results of this test must be signed by the MD, DO, APRN, or PA with a note certifying immunity.
4. Proof Health Insurance: All Residence Hall Students, Intercollegiate Athletes, and International Students are required to submit a copy of their current health insurance card to Chaminade Counseling Center. Students should ensure that current insurance will cover any medical needs in the state of Hawaii for the duration of their tenure at Chaminade University of Honolulu.
