To-Do List for Parents
The student conversion into college can sometimes be challenging. However, there are several things you can do to foster a smooth transition for your new Cowboy or Cowgirl.
See if your student has received the immunizations recommended for incoming students. If they haven't, decide if you want them to get additional immunizations - see the immunization tab for more details. Link: https://uhs.okstate.edu/compliance-policy
Be certain your student knows about any seasonal, food, or drug allergies, as well as their personal and family medical histories. They will need to be able to provide this information to healthcare providers.
Provide them with a small first-aid and over-the-counter medications kit. Items can include but are not limited to band-aids, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide solution, cotton swabs, gauze, Tylenol or Ibuprofen, antibiotic cream such as Neosporin, thermometer, and cough drops or throat lozenges. Students should also have plenty of contact solution, extra pairs of contacts, and a back-up pair of glasses.
