Immunization documentation is required by the State of New York of all students taking six or more credits in a degree-granting institution (i.e.: graduate, undergraduate, transfers, and returning students who, to date, have not complied). They must provide proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella and acknowledge receipt of information regarding meningococcal disease or provide proof of meningococcal vaccine.

Student Health Insurance
New York University requires that students studying abroad as part of their educational program be covered under the NYU-sponsored health insurance plan. Please review the GeoBlue Health Insurance Program for Students Studying Abroad before departing to the country of study. https://www.nyu.edu/content/dam/nyu/studentHealthServices/documents/PDFs/student-health-insurance/International/Student-Study-Abroad.pdf
If you have a chronic medical condition or are in treatment with a psychotherapist and/or psychiatrist, please let us know using the health history form. You can also submit relevant medical records to Health Information Management Services. A college health specialist will connect your student with appropriate support services at the Student Health Center or with local providers. Please ensure that this happens prior to the start of the semester.
