  1. Print and complete a University of Notre Dame Immunization Form and log into your Online Student Health account to upload it.

    • Failure to meet the immunization requirements may result in a delay in registration for the Fall 2023 semester and all subsequent semesters at the University of Notre Dame.
  3. Submit all completed health forms online by Tuesday February 28 for Spring 2023 classes.
  4. Graduate, Professional, and all International Notre Dame students ONLY:
    • You are required to have health insurance coverage that meets University criteria.
      • Therefore, you are automatically enrolled in, and charged for, the University-sponsored health insurance plan.
      • HOWEVER, if you have health insurance that meets University criteria, you may waive out of the University-sponsored health insurance plan.
      • For the 2022-23 academic year, the insurance plan will go into effect August 15 for NEW FALL students. If you need it sooner, email
    • You must use the enrollment/waiver application process if you want to waive the plan. 
      • Complete this process between Dec 15 and Feb 15 (you will receive an email when the site is open)
      • If you fail to complete this process by the deadline, or if your insurance plan doesn’t meet University criteria, you will remain enrolled in--and charged for--the University-sponsored health insurance plan
    • If you have dependents, they are eligible to use the ND Wellness Center.  You need to complete the eligibility form and submit to your department. .
