New Student Health Form Information
All New Lawrence University Students will need to fill out a New Student Medical History and Physical Examination form. This includes all incoming freshman and transfer students. All health forms should be submitted by August 1.
All forms must be completed and signed by the student (or parent if student is not yet 18 years of age) and the physician prior to admission and entry into campus housing. Incomplete or unsigned forms will result in an incomplete health file.
All new to Lawrence students are required to have a physical within 1 year of the first day of classes. Athletes are required to have a physical within six months of either (1) the first day of practice for fall sports or (2) the first day of classes for winter and spring sports.
Please have your immunizations prior to arrival on campus. Physical examinations are not available on campus.
All international students must have proof of health insurance coverage. If you do not, you must enroll in the health plan negotiated by the university and provided through a local company. If you have any questions about insurance or the medical forms, please contact our Director of International Student Services, Leah McSorley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Affordable Care Act requires domestic student enrollment in a health insurance plan unless you qualify for an exemption from the law. This means that if you file taxes and do not have a qualified health insurance plan, you may be required to pay a tax penalty.
