Requirements for Incoming Students


Before beginning their first quarter, all undergraduate students must submit the following:

  • Medical History Form 
  • Consent Form (signed by parent/guardian if under 18)
  • Official documentation of 2 doses of MMR (measles vaccine) given after age 1 OR a positive antibody titer.Vaccine documentation should be signed or stamped by the vaccine provider and clearly show the student's name and birth date.

A registration hold will result if these requirements are not met. Please allow 3-5 days for records processing before holds are removed. 



#1: Medical History and Consent Forms

Log into the secure Patient Portal with your SPU credentials (do not share your SPU credentials with anyone as this provides access to your health records). We strongly encourage students to do this for themselves even if parents help to provide immunization records. 

  • Select Forms tab
  • Under Administrative - please select and complete the Medical History Form Student and the Consent Form Student. Parent must sign if under 18.
  • Submit your answers. Any form with a red * is required. Allergies, medications, and significant medical history are particularly important.

#2: Immunization Documentation for Measles 

Log into the Patient Portal with your SPU credentials.

  • Select Immunization tab.
  • If the required vaccine dates are not already entered, manually enter the MMR dates under Required Immunizations
  • Select Upload then Immunization History to upload a copy of the official documentation (MANDATORY) from the student's health care provider, vaccine provider, or Washington State Immunization Registry  Health Services staff will review this documentation and verify the appropriate vaccine dates. 

#3: Upload Insurance Card

  • Select Upload, then Insurance to upload your insurance information or insurance card photo if you have health insurance.
  • This is not required, but highly recommended 


Special Situations:

Vaccine exemption Requests: SPU Immunization policy allows students to request a medical exemption (PDF) or religious exemption (PDF) from the MMR vaccine requirement by completing and uploading the appropriate form with supporting documentation. Upload the completed request form by going to Upload and selecting the waiver type requested from the drop down menu. Students must submit completed exemption request forms to Health Services at least 2 weeks before registration opens for Fall quarter. Incomplete request forms will not be accepted. Students will receive a message through the patient portal confirming the status of their exemption request within 2 weeks.

International Students: All International SPU Students (graduate and undergraduate) are required to meet the Health Registration requirements outlined above.

Online Only Students: Students who are registering for only online classes and have no plans to be on campus for training, meetings, evaluations or for any other campus activities (including internships off campus) can request a temporary waiver from the immunization requirements. The Online Only waiver form is completed by the student, and reviewed and approved by the faculty or program advisor.  This exemption is good for one quarter only and needs to be resubmitted each quarter that the student is registered for classes only online.  Students who are in internships (not just online only classes) need to follow up with their faculty or program advisor to review the internship site requirements. This may require additional documentation.
