OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

New Domestic Students

Immunization Requirements Prior to Attending OSU

All incoming domestic students must submit health forms and provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. This information is required by law for students to attend OSU and failure to provide this information will result in a registration hold.  The required forms may be completed online at the Patient Portal. [If you are unable to access the online forms, you may also print the health history form (PDF) and submit it by mail or fax.]

TB Screening Requirements

Students who have lived in a high-risk country for more than six (6) months are recommended to complete TB screening upon arrival at Oregon State. The TB screening will be available through OSU Student Health Services. The testing must be completed within the United States, so please do not pursue advance testing in another country prior to your arrival. If you have lived in one of the high-risk countries for more than 6 months and would like to be screened for TB, please contact OSU Student Health Services upon arrival at OSU.

Fees for Services

If you become ill or injured during your academic career or have questions about your health, please call the Student Health Services to make an appointment. Most routine office visits are available at no charge to you. These visits are paid for by the OSU Health Fee that you pay with tuition each term. Fees are often charged for additional services such as laboratory, X rays, prescriptions, massage and physical therapy. Visit Most Common Fees for current fee information.

Health Insurance

Student Health Services also offers health insurance plans for students. We urge all students to maintain health insurance coverage.

Infectious Diseases

OSU places high priority on preventing the spread of infectious diseases. To promote the health and well-being of the campus community, SHS offers preventive information on these diseases, as well as supplying any immunizations that are available for specific diseases.

Patient Portal

Student Health Services has an electronic medical record system which provides faster access to patient information and better communication with pharmacies regarding prescriptions. We have also developed a secure Patient Web Portal that allows you to electronically communicate confidentially with providers and submit the required health and immunization forms online.

If you have any chronic medical conditions or have ongoing prescription needs, we encourage you to make an appointment with a primary care provider early in your academic career. Prior medical records are often helpful in transitioning your ongoing medical care to SHS while you are at the university. You should request that your current medical provider fax a copy of your pertinent records to: 541-737-9665. Alternatively, the records can be mailed to Oregon State University Student Health Services, Attn: Medical Records Department, 201 Plageman, Corvallis, OR 97331.
