Abrons Student Health Center

WELCOME SEAHAWKS!

 

On behalf of the Abrons Student Health Center, we are so excited that you are UNCW bound. We look forward to serving your healthcare needs during your time at UNCW.

There are a few things that you can take care of before coming to campus that will make your transition to UNCW more successful.

  1. All incoming first-year, transfer, and graduate students are required to show proof of immunizations to attend UNCW.
  2. All students are also required to have health insurance to attend UNCW. This may be insurance that students currently have (family, employer, etc.), insurance they purchase through the school, or a combination of both plans.

Prior to orientation, we ask that (1) you send your completed Medical History Form and Immunization Record to us via mail, email, or fax and (2) that you complete the online insurance waiver or enrollment process. Directions, with some helpful hints, are located below, along with our address.

We look forward to meeting you during orientation and to being your doctor’s office away from home while you are at UNCW. Please call us at 910-962-3280 if you have any questions.

The Staff of the Abrons Student Health Center


1. MEDICAL HISTORY FORM and IMMUNIZATION RECORD

Students should complete and sign the entire Medical History Form and Immunization Record. If a student is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must sign the form as well. If you are having another entity send in your immunization records, you must also complete, sign, and submit the Medical History Form and Immunization Record. Note that not all your records may be in one place or from one source. Be sure to review what you are submitting to make sure all requirements are met.

Records of your immunizations may be obtained from any of the following:

  • Physician or Local Health Department. These records must have a medical provider’s stamp or signature or have the clinic or health department stamp with address.
  • State Immunization Registry printout
  • Military Records or WHO (World Health Organization) Documents. Note that these records may not contain all the required immunizations
  • Previous High School, College or University records

Make sure your name and Date of Birth are on all pages. We encourage you to keep a copy of the records you submit.

If you are transferring into UNCW, your immunization records do not transfer automatically from other colleges/universities, you must request that they be sent to the Student Health Center.

You may review North Carolina’s immunization requirements on the Immunization Branch’s website.

Important: Immunization requirements must be met within 30 days from the first date of the class (August 24, 2022), or you will be withdrawn from your classes by the registrar without receiving course credit or monetary refund for classes.

2. HEALTH INSURANCE

Health Insurance is required for all UNCW students. This may be insurance that students currently have (family, employer, etc.), insurance they purchase through the school, or a combination of both plans.

Students are required to waive out of or enroll in the student health insurance plan via the online web portal at studentbluenc.com each semester

Students are automatically charged for the Student Health Insurance Plan. Those students who wish to waive out of the insurance must do each semester by the deadline, or they will be responsible for the insurance charge.
