Spring 2021 Health Hold Updates

FSU is aware of the challenges students may be experiencing obtaining immunizations in light of the current pandemic novel coronavirus. University Health Services will provide temporary deferments to allow for class registration. Deferments are approved on a case-by-case basis. If you are unable to meet your immunization requirement, please contact the UHS health compliance staff to see if you qualify. The University requires that students have health insurance, but if you have specific concerns or questions, please contact the UHS Health Compliance Staff. 

For additional details, please see our FAQ's below, or reach out to a Health Compliance associate at healthcompliance@fsu.edu
