Welcome to the Stevens community!

Student Health Services assists in maintaining your health and the health of others on campus in a caring, confidential environment. The State of New Jersey requires each student attending state-accredited institutions of higher education to provide his/her complete Student Health and Immunization Record. This is due before you move into residence halls and/or before you start classes. Every undergraduate, graduate, international, domestic, full-time, part-time and transfer student on campus must have a completed Student Health and Immunization Record on file with Student Health Services. If you are taking all of your classes online, you are NOT required to submit a Student Health and Immunization Record. If you meet on campus for even one (1) class, then please follow the instructions for “Part-Time” students.  Please note the following requirements have been broken down into enrollment categories:

FULL-TIME Undergraduate Students (Domestic, International, Transfers)

ONLINE/WEB CAMPUS Graduate Students

  • No Student Health and Immunization Record Required

Conclusion

It is very important that you complete the Student Health and Immunization Record in its entirety. An incomplete Record will result in a Registrar’s Hold being placed on your account. This means you will not be able to register in person or via the Web for any future classes until all forms are received by Student Health Services.

If you have any questions concerning the above information, please email Student Health Services at [email protected]. We will be glad to assist you.
