Student Dress Requirements

Gwinnett Medical Center

 All students will need to have ID Badges made with both their photo and name on them. Unfortunately, with this change, the cost of the badge will go up to $10, however $5 will be returned at the end of their course (We have put a lot of thought into this process and regret that the cost of the badges had to go up because of the increase cost of supplies we must use). Should a student lose a badge the price to replace the badge will stay the same, i.e. at $25 a nonrefundable fee.

Instructors will need to have a picture GMC ID Badge as well. Instructor badges are still going to be free, unless a badge is lost. For a lost badge, it will also cost the instructor $25 to replace their badge. Note all old badges will be turned off in the middle of August, so this information affects everyone coming on campus after that date. More information may follow this updated information.

Either your picture can be taken at the Public Safety department or if you have jpeg photos with your instructor/student picture and name on we will see if we can use those to expedite the processing of the badges.

ID Badges can be obtained from the Public Safety Department (badge office) Monday- Thursday, 7:30am-4:00pm, Friday, 7:30-1:00pm. Before coming to have a badge made or to pick a badge up, please call 678-312-4057 or email Matt Shafer,, and let him know what time you will be coming.

Faculty Information:


 2013-2014 Influenza Policy****All students/faculty need to obtain a flu vaccine or wear a mask when they come on site as was done last year.

1.       If the students have started before Oct. and will be here into Oct. or later – deadline is October 1, 2013.

2.       Otherwise, the documentation is due for all students before they start, if their experience occurs between October 1, 2013 and May 15th, 2014.

NOTE: This year I also need you all to send me documentation that your students have received the flu vaccine – this also includes the students we have already cleared if they will be continuing into October.  We would prefer that you scan and email us each individuals flu documentation bundled with their instructor’s and other students in the group. (We are required by the CDC to give accurate reporting numbers of flu vaccinations including students and faculty.)
