**Important**

Congratulations on your acceptance to Farmingdale State College.  We would like to wish you success as you pursue your educational goals.  In order to quickly meet with your academic advisor and to register for classes, you must first provide the Health and Wellness Center with proof of receiving 2 MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) immunizations.  You must also provide us with proof of a meningitis immunization within the last five (5) years, or sign a meningitis response form (Meningitis Response and Information Form).  

You can obtain proof of these immunizations in several ways:

  • Your pediatrician or healthcare provider
  • A former high school or college
  • Veterans can get proof through the VA

If for some reason you cannot get a copy, contact your healthcare provider or make an appointment at the Health and Wellness Center.  Blood work, called titers, will be drawn in order to determine immunity.

We accept your immunizations on our own immunization form (Immunization Form), your healthcare provider's form or on a school's form.  Please make sure all documents are legible, signed and stamped by the healthcare provider, include your name and date of birth and RAM number (if known).  

You can submit your paperwork as follows:

  • email to: wellness@farmingdale.edu
  • Fax to:  (631) 420-2137
  • Mail to: Health and Wellness Center, Farmingdale State College, 2350 Broadhollow Road, Farmingdale, NY 11735
  • In person: at the Health and Wellness Center.  Secure drop boxes are located at the front and rear of the building when Center is closed.

Keep in mind that all full time students are required to complete a full health record (Complete Health Record) which includes a physical and history from a healthcare provider.  

*******A full Health Record is not due until just prior to the start of classes.  Resident students will not receive keys to their dorm and athletes will not be allowed to practice until it is complete and submitted*******

You can find additional forms in the Forms section.  Also check the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information regarding MMRs.  

If you have any questions or issues, please contact us at (631) 420-2009.
