Health Requirements for Enrollment

We're here to help! KU Medical Center Student Health will perform all necessary tests, exams and blood work and assist you with required forms.

If you are an online student, you may not be required to complete immunization requirements.  Please refer to your program of study if you have questions. All international students must complete IGRA screening for Tuberculosis.


Health requirements must be complete at least three (3) business days before the first day of class. Students who are in the process of completing an immunization series will be allowed to enroll as long as the series has been started and shots are being completed on schedule.

Until your health requirements are complete, you will have a Student Health hold on your account which will prevent you from enrolling. A hold on the first day of class will result in the loss of important resources and additional fees.

Enrollment requirements may be fulfilled by making an appointment with Student Health Services. Gather your immunization records and log in to your KU Medical Center Student Health Account to schedule an appointment or you can call 913-588-1941 to make an appointment.
