Health Services Requirements and Forms
At the University of New Haven, we value your health and that of our entire campus community. This page details the health examination and immunization requirements for students at the University of New Haven, and provides information on securely transmitting your health information to Health Services.
Student Health Requirements
A health examination and proof of immunizations is required of all new students. For fall entry, new incoming undergraduate students must submit documentation by August 1. Please see details on your ROAD MAP FOR NEW STUDENTS, located in the admissions portal. New incoming graduate students must submit documentation prior to registering for classes in their first term.
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 titers), along with the completed physical form with the Health Examination and Immunizations Form. Digital submission is highly encouraged. For those bringing physical copies to campus, please note: We highly recommend that you make copies of all forms for your personal records prior to bringing the forms to our office.
Varsity athletes or those in certain Health Sciences programs may need to complete a physical (see page 6 of the Health Examination and Immunization form). 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.
HIPAA-Compliant Document Submission
Beginning August 1, the University of New Haven is using MyChart document submission to our Office of Health Services. This includes the required physical examination form and required vaccination records.
