The minimum immunization requirements for a student in a North Carolina college or university are as follows:
Tetanus Series (Td, DPT, Tdap)
Three doses. One must have been within the past 10 years. Those individuals enrolling in college or university for the first time on or after July 1, 2008 must have had three doses of tetanus / diphtheria toxoid and a booster dose of tetanus / diphtheria / pertussis vaccine if a tetanus / diphtheria toxoid or tetanus / diphtheria / pertussis vaccine has not been administered within the past 10 years.
Two doses (given on or after first birthday)
Or documented positive IgG titers to Measles (Rubeola), Mumps, Rubella

Required or Recommended
North Carolina law requires students attending colleges or universities to receive certain vaccines. You should also have the immunizations recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That way, you’re fully protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. Recommended vaccines include flu, Hepatitis A, and HPV.
These immunizations and all other medical requirements are due by July 1 for Fall admission and January 1 for Spring admission. Immunization records that remain incomplete following 30 days of enrollment will result in dismissal from class until immunization requirements are met.
Students may have a comparable existing health insurance policy through parent plans, family plans or employer-sponsored plans. If you do, you must waive out every year while enrolled at Wingate University to avoid being charged for the university’s plan.
Students may elect to accept the health insurance plan offered by Wingate University. Alternatively, they can choose to purchase their own comparable insurance plan and complete the online waiver by the deadline for each semester. Students who don’t complete the waiver are charged for health insurance and are automatically enrolled in the university’s plan.
We will submit claims for students covered under the BCBS student plan offered through Wingate University. Students with other insurance providers will receive a “walkout” statement that they can submit to their insurance for reimbursement. No matter which insurance coverage a student has, students are responsible for all fees for their care by the Health Center.
