HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama A&M University released a statement Monday afternoon concerning the status of students attending from countries where the Ebola outbreak is prevalent.

The statement said that six undergraduate and graduate students are slated to arrive on campus from the African countries of Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

"In keeping with Alabama Department of Public Health directives, University health officials will continue to follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines," the statement said. "Because of the impact of the Ebola virus in certain African countries, the U.S. State Department is requiring that such international students entering the United States show proof of immunization at the airport. AAMU will require the same of students when they arrive for registration, pending clearance from their respective countries, and will keep these important documents on file, along with detailed information on students’ places of residence."
