For your continued enrollment at Northeastern University, the Health Center must have a Health Report that includes documentation of immunity.

Please note, all incoming undergraduate students will receive a copy of the Health Report from the admissions office. Graduate students, including those at the School of Law, will receive information from their programs. Bouvé students, see the additional information on clinical clearance requirements.

The University Health Report is available to download, print, or read online.
