Student Health

Your mental, physical, and emotional state can influence your energy levels, overall health and well-being more than you may realize. Every thought and feeling, no matter how big or small, impacts your health and vulnerability to illness.

Student Health Education at Madison College believes:

  • Healthier students are better learners.
  • Success in college is more than just academics.
  • All students deserve the opportunity to be healthy and successful.

Information on vaccines 

Immunizations offer safe and effective protection from vaccine-preventable diseases.  

Madison College strongly supports the use of vaccines to protect the health of our individual students and our campus communities.

If you are not immunized, your chances of becoming ill and suffering serious complications are much higher.

Madison College does not have a pre-admission policy requiring mandatory vaccinations for general admittance to the college, however, certain programs at Madison College do have pre-admission vaccination requirements such as our School of Health Education and Protective Service programs where students work with populations who are vulnerable to illness or pose a risk to the student while completing their coursework and practicums.

For more information about vaccines and immunizations, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
