Health Forms & Immunization Requirements

All UNDERGRADUATE students must provide proof of immunizations and health history information prior to moving into campus housing. Failure to take this action will prevent the student from having access to their residence hall during move-in.

The Habif Health & Wellness Center is dedicated to maintaining a healthy campus. The center offers medical and mental health providers, nursing staff, laboratory services, and a pharmacy available on campus in order to provide complete care.

It is also important you transfer your medical records and prescriptions to the Habif Health & Wellness Center and make arrangements for treatment.

You may find it helpul to work with your parent or family member when filling out some of these forms if you are planning to stay on your family health insurance plan.  Learn more
