Your Health Form is critical to your safety and well-being while you are enrolled at JCSU, particularly as we continue to live with the threat of COVID-19. North Carolina law requires that all entering students submit proof of required immunizations to maintain enrollment at JCSU. The Director of Health Services, Dr. Marian Jones, reserves the right to interpret the validity of all documents submitted to Health Services. If you have specific medical questions for Dr. Jones, then please reach out to her at or 704.378.1074.

Yes! Even as we return this to campus this spring, JCSU will require that you arrive fully vaccinated--meaning you have either received the Johnson and Johnson ("one-and-done" shot) or the Moderna/Pfizer (two shots) vaccinations. 

Verification of your vaccination experience will be determined by one of the following: 

  • Providing a copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card that will be kept in your health records in Health Services; or, 
  • Including vaccination verification, as evidenced by a doctor or vaccination clinic, as a part of your regular Health Immunization Form submission to Health Services

Since you will be coming to Golden Bull Academy, you can bring your verification with you and provide a copy to Health Services. If you have questions or concerns about this requirement (i.e., need to request a medical and/or religious exemption), then please contact Dr. Marian Jones, Director of Health Services, at or 704.378.1074, for further assistance. 

Great question! You can provide your completed Health Form and all supporting medical documents two, main ways (see below). And don’t forget, you can bring your Health Form and medical documents, including proof of your COVID-19 vaccine, to Golden Bull Academy with you
