Immunizations

All CCC students living in the residence halls must have these required immunizations:
  • CCC requires TB screening (PPD skin testing and/or chest x-ray) within 6 months of matriculation.
  • Meningococcal (Meningitis)
Students must provide proof of the vaccination or sign a waiver declining vaccination. It is recommended that CCC students meet the following American College Health Association immunization guidelines prior to registration for classes:
  • Measles, Mumps, and Rubella
  • Tetanus-Diphtheria

Student Health Insurance

When uninsured students become seriously ill or injured, their academic careers can be significantly threatened by substantial healthcare debt or disability. Therefore, Colby Community College strongly encourages students to obtain health insurance coverage. CCC does not offer or sponsor any individual health insurance plans; however, more information on health insurance policies can be found by contacting the Student Health Nurse or by visiting the websites listed below.
