Prior to the start of classes, GCU requires all students to submit documentation or waivers for certain immunizations. We also ask that certain student groups provide proof of medical insurance. Review the information below prior to the start of classes to make sure you are eligible to start classes on GCU's campus.
Immunization Requirements and Recommendations
To promote a safe and healthy community, GCU requires you to receive certain vaccines prior to attending classes. Many of these vaccines can be obtained at the Canyon Health and Wellness Clinic. It is your responsibility to verify that appropriate documentation has been submitted.
Health Insurance and Medical Requirements
GCU offers AETNA student health insurance for all students who are required to provide proof of coverage. Nursing students in the clinical component of their program and athletes participating in university-sponsored sports are required to provide proof of health insurance. All international students are automatically enrolled in the AETNA student insurance program.
