How to Complete the New Student Health Requirement

  1. Come to Nebraska Medicine – University Health Center (Room 158) - Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

  2. Bring Your Immunization Record

    You need to show proof you've had:

    If your immunization record can't be found:

    • Receive two rubeola measles/MMR immunizations at UHC scheduled 30 days apart. You must have an appointment. To schedule your appointment, call 402.472.5000.

    • Have a rubeola blood test drawn at UHC. This blood test will look for antibodies to measles, mumps and rubella to determine if you are immune to the diseases. An appointment to have the test done is not required. Walk in during business hours. A negative test result requires two rubeola measles/MMR immunizations.

  3. Complete your tuberculosis test

    • This test is required for all international students. NO EXCEPTIONS. The test MUST be done at UHC. A chest x-ray and physician visit is required if the test is positive.

    • All costs are the responsibility of the student. For students who have the University of Nebraska's student insurance plan, the cost is covered 100 percent
