IMPORTANT: Failure to submit appropriate and completed immunization documentation to MedProctor at least 30 days prior to your orientation could impact your ability to register for classes.

MedProctor will communicate via your ETSU email regarding any additional information they may need. We encourage you to submit your records as soon as possible to allow MedProctor time to review and contact you if additional information is needed. Incomplete information will take longer to process. If you have difficulty using the MedProctor platform, you may contact MedProctor between 8AM and 4PM Monday through Friday:
MENIGOCOCCAL IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENT (For students living on campus ONLY.)
Students under the age of 22 choosing to live on campus must provide medical documentation that they have received a Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (Menactra or Menveo) within the past 5 years. CDC recommends a two-dose primary series at least 8 weeks apart. This immunization will not prevent you from registering for your classes, but it will prevent you from moving into campus housing. Please make sure to upload this vaccine to MedProctor as soon as you receive it so that it does not prevent you from being able to move into your campus dorm or apartment.
