Health Center

The Towson University Health Center provides health and wellness services for registered students including immunization services. The following health center  information specifically pertains to international students.

New Students:

  • Please review your immunization requirements and submit the required immunization records prior to beginning classes.
  • All new international students are enrolled in University Health Insurance.
