Health Certification

All new students must complete the University Health Report form following acceptance to the university. This form may be obtained at the University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) located at 135 Forsyth Building or downloaded from the UHCS website

As a condition of matriculation at Northeastern University, all students are required to submit the completed University Health Report form to UHCS. Consult the UHCS website for deadlines to submit the University Health Report form. UHCS will block the registration of those students who do not file the correct forms. All documentation must be signed by a medical doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. Medical documentation and health certification are maintained by UHCS. Please refer to the University Health Report form for further information. 

Programs in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences may require additional medical documentation and health certification. This varies among programs; consult your program handbook or your program advisor for more information. Additional requirements may include exam or statement of good health prior to registration, annual proof of physical examination, and/or proof of additional immunities. Additional clinical clearance(s) may be required by some programs prior to being present in any clinical setting. Students should consult their program director or clinical coordinator for more information. 

These policies and/or procedures apply to Bouvé’s undergraduate and graduate students, unless specifically indicated otherwise in this section of the catalog.
