Welcome Incoming Graduate Students! Many of the UHS requirements for incoming graduate students are completed through MyUHS, a secure online student health portal. You will need your Princeton NetID to access MyUHS. If you are a Degree-seeking student, try accessing the portal after you receive your welcome letter via email from UHS. If you are a nondegree student, you will be able to access MyUHS approximately 21 days after you have confirmed your acceptance with Graduate Admissions. You should complete all requirements 1 month before arrival to campus or by the date indicated below – whichever occurs first. You may also wish to print the Incoming Grad Checklist now, to help you track completion of the requirements described below. Due to COVID-19, anticipate there may be some additional challenges to get these requirements completed (e.g., immunizations or physical exam) by the deadlines. However, there will be no relaxation of requirements. Start now by contacting your health care provider’s office so they can inform you on the best timing and method (in office visit or telehealth appointment). If you have concerns about fulfilling the requirements in time, contact [email protected] and someone will get back to you within 3 business days. In addition to the requirements, there is important health-related information you should familiarize yourself with before coming to campus. Now Make an appointment with your health care provider You must make an appointment with your primary health care provider (e.g., nurse practitioner, doctor, physician's assistant) to get a physical examination and a copy of your immunization records. It could take time to get an appointment, so we recommend contacting your health care provider's office as soon as possible so they can inform you on the best timing and method (in-office visit or telehealth appointment). If you do not have an identified clinic or primary care provider, email [email protected] for help connecting to resources that may be available to you. At your healthcare provider appointment Obtain necessary immunizations and a copy of your record Print a copy of the Required and Recommended Immunizations for Princeton University. Be sure that your immunization record includes all of the immunization requirements. Your provider may also share copies of lab titer results or chest x-ray reports as part of your immunization record. An immunization hold will be applied to your academic registration until your immunizations are on file with UHS. By June 30 (or 1 month before arrival on campus) Upload a copy of immunization records Login to MyUHS to manually enter your immunizations data by selecting the "Immunizations" menu item.
