Dear Incoming Student:
The staff of the Hammond Health Center is pleased to welcome you to Ithaca College! Hammond Health Center provides comprehensive primary medical care services for all Ithaca College students. We are fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
Prior to beginning classes, we need you to complete health certification forms on-line AND to provide an official immunization record. This is required in order to comply with New York State law, as well as to protect your health and that of your fellow students, and to provide us with information that will help us to understand and serve your health needs while you are here at Ithaca College. All health care records at the Hammond Health Center are confidential and are completely separate from any other College records.
To access the system for submitting this information, go to the Hammond Health Center’s web page at www.ithaca.edu/health. The site will be available after May 1, 2016. Select the MyICHealthCenter tab from the menu bar on the bottom left side. You will be required to enter your Ithaca College Netpass user name and password followed by your birth date on the next page for added security purposes.
