Samuel Merritt University has health requirements for all incoming and enrolled students, including a physical exam and immunizations. Student Health and Counseling Center maintains all student health records and determines compliancy with these health requirements, working together with students and faculty to ensure that your records are kept up to date. Questions regarding health records, immunizations, missing documentation, or health service "holds" on academic registration must be directed to Student Health and Counseling Center at 510-869-6629.
Before registration, all entering students must provide the following documented forms and materials. All documentation needed for a student's health record is enclosed with the Admission package or can be found here: Student Health Forms.
All students are required to complete the Student Health Forms as soon as you have been accepted to the program, but no later than 30 days before your program start date in order to avoid a registration hold. All required health information must be entered on the Student Health Portal (SHP) and supporting documents must be uploaded to the Student Health Portal (SHP) at https://studenthealth.samuelmerritt.edu/. Documents submitted by mail, email, fax, or hand-delivered will NOT be accepted and documents will not be returned.
