New Student Physical and Immunization Requirements and Forms

At the University of New Haven, we value your health and that of our entire campus community.

Health Services Requirements

For fall entry, incoming undergraduate students must submit documentation to us by July 1. Incoming graduate students must submit documentation prior to registering for classes in their first term.

Health Examination and Immunizations Form - Required for all students
(Includes full-time/part-time status, undergraduate and graduate students)

If you have received the required vaccines, please submit proof of immunity, i.e. records from school, parent's records or copies of lab results of blood tests (for rubella and rubeola titres), along with the completed physical form with the Health Examination and Immunizations Form. Please note: We highly recommend that you make copies of all forms for your personal records prior to mailing copies to our office.

Varsity atheletes or those in certain Health Sciences programs may need to complete a physical (see page 6 of the Health Examination and Immunization packet). If so, and due to the busy nature of many physicians' practices, we recommend scheduling a physical examination and (if necessary) immunizations with your doctor as soon as possible.

Additional Forms and Information

Patient Financial Responsibility Notice
For all students.
This notice details the financial responsibility students bear for the health care they receive at and/or through Health Services at the University of New Haven. Please note: This notice is provided here for your information and review. You do not need to download and return this form now - students will be asked to sign this form at the time they utilize Health Services.

Immunization Request Form
For students who are graduating or who leave the university and want to request their medical records. Please allow up to two weeks for requested records to be sent. State law requires that the university keep medical files for a period of seven years after a student has left the institution. After that time period, all records are destroyed.
