Do you need a copy of your immunization records from UHS?
Please follow instructions at Health Records.
All incoming students are expected to submit their immunization records, preferably at least 30 days before classes begin.
However, you cannot submit records now, because we are building a new system to collect records. We request your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.
