- Pre-entrance Health Record -- All students admitted to the University
must submit a health history form and record of immunizations before
they register for their
first semester. The University sends the form to students after they
have accepted an offer of admission.
- Health Insurance -- The University requires all students to
have health insurance to pay the cost of hospitalization, outpatient
treatment of accidental injuries, and outpatient diagnostic tests
and procedures. Students may enroll either in the health insurance
plan sponsored by the University of Virginia Student Council or
in a substitute insurance plan that students (or their parents)
feel is comparable. The Student Council-sponsored insurance carrier
will send information concerning its plan during the summer to
all students entering or returning to the University in the fall.
Students entering the University at other times should contact
Student Health directly for enrollment information.
- Failure to comply with immunization or insurance requirements
results in blocked registration until verification is provided.
- Medical Withdrawal/Readmission -- Student Health must review
any request for readmission by a student who originally withdrew for
medical reasons. If a family or personal physician was involved in the
withdrawal and recommendation to resume studies, a letter in this regard
should be sent to Student Health, Division of General Medicine.
