Medical Immunizations for Education Abroad Policy

Students participating in international study/travel opportunities are required to receive from Berea College Health Service or a recognized travel authority such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or similar body all immunizations recommended for travel to a particular region. Exceptions to this policy will be made only for a student who has had a waiver from immunization for religious reasons on file with the College from the time of initial enrollment. Any student requesting exemption must receive counseling from Berea College Health Service concerning the risks they are assuming prior to signing a special waiver form before every international trip. (Also see “International Education “Here and There” in the Campus Community section.)
