All new students must also provide proof of immunization against hepatitis B and meningococcal meningitis or sign a waiver declining these immunizations.

    • 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 result in a registration hold.

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. The deadline to waive the insurance for the Fall is July 15th.
  • If you are under 18, you and a parent/guardian need to fill out and submit the minor consent form.
