Required Forms for New Students
Drury University requires every new student to complete the Online Health and Emergency Contact Form, submit a copy of your immunization records, and complete the online Sexual Assault Prevention & Alcohol Edu training modules. We also request all students review and complete the FERPA information release form.
Students who do not submit these requirements could be subject to a registration hold being placed on their student account.
How to Access Required Forms
- All forms are found online and should be completed through your MyDrury account.
- MyDrury accounts are accessed from the Drury University homepage at www.drury.edu and clicking on the MyDrury icon on the top of the page.
- To log in, use your Drury username and password, which is the same as your Drury email username and password.
- Click the ‘Student’ tab on the top of the page.
- On the left sidebar, click ‘Student Forms’.
- In the middle of the page, you will now see the three required forms you must complete and submit.
If you begin work on one of the forms and you do not have time to finish, you may save the information you have submitted and go back at a later time to finish and submit the form.
Description of Required Forms
- Information Release (FERPA)
With the completion of this form, students who are 18 years of age and older give Drury University the authority to release (or not release) their personal, academic and financial information to any person of their choosing. Without authorization, Drury faculty and staff are not allowed, by federal law, to release any information about our students to any person not approved by the student including parents.
2. Health and Emergency Information Form
Every effort is made to ensure the safety and well-being of all individuals involved in activities offered through Drury University. However, emergencies do sometimes occur. By submitting this form, if you are involved in a campus-related emergency, your information will be conveyed to the health professionals caring for you. This information will remain private and on file unless an emergency should occur.
3. New Student Housing Contract or Request for Exemption from the Housing Policy Form
Drury University recognizes the value of residential living to the total educational process, and therefore requires that all full-time day school students live on campus unless they meet specific exemption criteria.
Beginning with the 2015-16 academic year, the university will consider exemption requests from students who meet one or more of the criteria below:
- Age 21 or older at the start of the academic year
- Have a child
- Medical condition that cannot reasonably be accommodated in student housing
- Extenuating circumstances
- Veteran or currently serving in the United States military
Students 21 and over will receive priority for off-campus housing, but are not guaranteed approval. Complete a Housing Exemption Form if you want to move off campus.
4. Vaccination Records
Students must submit a copy of their complete vaccination records to Vicki Harrold, Executive Assistant to the Vice-President of Student Affairs.
Required vaccines include: MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella); Polio; DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus)
Recommended vaccines include: Hepatitis B; Varicella (Chicken Pox); Meningococcal (Meningitis)

Questions about the required forms or vaccination records may be directed to Vicki Harrold, Executive Assistant to the Vice-President of Student Affairs at email@example.com or (417) 873-7215.
5. Sexual Assault Prevention / Alcohol Edu
- Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates: This course talks about the prevention and community resources surrounding sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct. Students are asked to take surveys about their perceptions surrounding sexual assault through brief surveys, and are educated on sexual misconduct and related topics through online modules.
- AlcoholEdu for College: This course talks about Alcohol on campus and students’ perceptions regarding alcohol misuse and consumption on campus. In addition, it provides resources and education surrounding the topic of alcohol, alcohol misuse, and navigating peer pressure related to drinking.
