New Students: Submitting Your Health Forms

Welcome to Drew University Health Services (“DUHS“)! We hope that your time here will be healthy, happy and always intellectually stimulating. We encourage you to come see us if you have any health care needs or concerns.

Students are able to complete most of the required health documents before arriving on campus. We urge you to allow yourself sufficient time to access your immunization record from your healthcare provider and for undergraduates to make arrangements to also have a physical examination. If you have not already made an appointment with your healthcare provider, do so as soon as possible.

Documents must be received by the due date indicated below. As a registered student you have confidential and secure online access to forms on your electronic health record through myhealth, a secure student health portal.  Although most information will be completed online through the portal, there are some documents that need to be printed, completed, and returned to DUHS.  Both paper and online portal forms must be received by the due dates listed below. Students will not be permitted to continue registration or reside in Drew housing until immunization and information requirements are met.  Your health forms will only be considered complete after BOTH the online and required paper forms are received.  All documents  must be in English.

Important Information About Submitting Your Health Forms

Some students have reported that they are unable to schedule appointments for physicals until after the deadline. When this happens, the Health Service will grant an extension. However, all forms must be received as soon as possible and prior to arrival in order to secure housing and registration.

All health forms must be completed in full both online and on paper. No substitutions for online forms will be accepted.

Your documents are not complete until Health Services has received all online and paper forms. Please be sure to submit your forms before the appropriate due date listed under New Student Documents (above).
