    • Immunization information must be uploaded to MyUHealthChart.com prior to arrival on campus. New undergraduate students may not have access to MyUHealthChart until one week after payment of their admissions deposit.
    • Immunization information may be provided to the State of Florida FLORIDA SHOTS immunization registry.
  • 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 health insurance ID card 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.
  • If you are under 18, you and a parent/guardian need to fill out and submit the minor consent form.
  • Arrange for your prescriptions to be transferred to the Walgreens Pharmacy at Lennar.
  • 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 on campus.
  • Review the Student Health Service website and related policies.
