Welcome

Welcome to the University of Miami!  In order to prevent any issues with your registration or financial account, review the information below and complete all requested forms prior to the stated deadlines.   

Immunization Forms must be received two weeks prior to the start of your first semester.

Deadlines to waive the insurance are July 25th for the Fall semester, January 25th for the Spring semester, April 25th for Summer I and June 25th for Summer II

New undergraduate students may not have access to mystudenthealth until one week after payment of their admissions deposit.

Before Arriving

  1.         Complete and submit an immunization compliance form.

    All students are required to provide proof of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella; and tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. All new students must also provide proof of immunization against hepatitis B and meningococcal meningitisor sign a waiver declining these immunizations. For students less than 18 years old, the meningitis/ hepatitis vaccine waivers must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. Students should also consider immunization against varicella (chicken pox).

    All international students must also be screened for risk of tuberculosis by completing page two of the immunization form.

    Nursing, physical therapy, and medical (M.D) students are required to obtain additional immunizations and tuberculosis screening as described on the nursing and physical therapy immunization form and medical student immunization form.

    Immunization information must be entered at mystudenthealth.miami.edu and the completed immunization form must be uploaded to mystudenthealth.miami.edu  prior to arrival on campus. Failure to comply with these immunization requirements prior to the beginning of your first semester will interfere with registration and a $50.00 late processing fee will be charged for any form received after the start of the semester.

    Immunization information may be provided to the State of Florida FLORIDA SHOTS immunization registry.

  2. Review the information on health insurance and choose whether to waive or maintain the University sponsored insurance plan. Students with limited out of area coverage or otherwise inadequate coverage are urged to carefully review their options before waiving the University sponsored insurance plan. Domestic students can waive the University sponsored insurance via the United HealthCare (UHCSR) waiver portal.  You or your designee will need your student ID (C#), date of birth and insurance information in order to submit a waiver request.  You will receive a waiver approval or denial (if we are unable to confirm insurance coverage) from waiverstatus@uhcsr.com within 5 business days of waiver submission.

            The deadline to waive the insurance is July 25th.
  3. If you are under 18, you and a parent/guardian need to fill out and submit the minor consent form.

  4. Arrange for you prescriptions to be transferred to the Walgreens Pharmacy at Lennar.

  5. Students with on-going chronic or serious medical conditions should contact the Student Health Service at studenthealth@miami.edu to arrange care and transfer records prior to arriving to campus.

  6. Review the Student Health Service website and related policies.
