Immunization Record Deadlines
October 1: Incoming Summer/Fall student deadline
March 1: Incoming Spring student deadline
Immunizations are due by close of business (4:30pm) on the day of the deadline.
We recommend you submit your immunization records early. This way our office can review and contact you if your records are not complete or there are questions about the information we received.
Submitting records early allows students additional time to obtain necessary vaccinations or locate information if needed by the Immunization Office.
Late Immunization Records
If your immunization records and forms are not submitted by the stated deadline a hold will be placed on your Patriot Web account and you will be assessed a $50 late fee. Note: Students whose records were due prior to October 1, 2016 will have a $25 late fee.
This hold will prevent you from registering for future classes and can possibly have future Visa issues for international students. The hold will be lifted once you are fully compliant with your immunizations and the late fee has been paid.
Incomplete or Missing Immunizations
The Immunization Office will review your Immunization records and email you if your records are not complete. Communication will be sent to the student’s George Mason email account only.
Immunization records not completed by the appropriate deadline will be subject to the late fee and account hold.
Late Fee and Account Holds
You can pay your late fee online or submit payment to Student Health Services clinic. Do not pay the late fee at Student Accounts. Do not include payment for late fee via the drop box. Immunization holds will be removed once records are complete and payment is reflected.
If you are making a payment online, allow 24 – 48 business hours for your payment to reflect in our system. Student account holds can only be removed during regular hours Monday-Friday. Payments made after 4:30pm will be processed the next business day. Payments will not be processed on holidays, weekends, or any day the university is closed.
Immunization records due by March 1st.
All newly admitted or newly re-admitted spring students must submit immunization records by the deadline. Records turned in after the deadline or records that are incomplete after the deadline will be charged a late fee and a hold will be placed on the student's account.
Past Due Immunization Records
If you have a hold and late fee, you must complete the immunizations and pay the late fee to Student Health Services to have your hold removed. The hold will be released usually by the end of that business day, if after 4:30 pm it will be processed the next business day.
Note: Do not include social security numbers on your immunization records.
