  6. Complete health requirements. Students are expected to complete all health requirements electronically on the student health portal ( prior to their scheduled advising appointment. Please note that all students are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Plan and are assessed a fee for the policy on their term bill (the coverage is for a one-year period). Students who are covered under private insurance may opt to decline this insurance coverage and waive this fee by completing the Insurance Waiver form by the designated deadline.  Requests for insurance waiver must be received by the term due date. This is also the date the student’s bill is due.  Missed deadlines will result in mandatory participation in the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan and may also be subject to late payment fees. At your advising appointment, health services staff will meet with you to confirm that all your health requirements have been met. Please have a copy of your health insurance card and official vaccination record during your advising appointment.

Please be in attendance 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time (either virtual or on campus). You will receive a confirmation email once you make the appointment.  We will provide you with a specific advising time based on the date and time frame that you choose below. Be sure to check your email regularly (we will use the email you sign up with as our point of contact).
