Required Health Forms

Rhode Island State Law requires that all incoming undergraduate students submit health forms and a current immunizations record prior to arriving on campus.

Students, who for medical or religious reasons decline Rhode Island mandated vaccines, must complete the medical or religious exemption form.    

All health forms must be entered electronically and uploaded in the patient portal. Forms will not be accepted by fax or mail. Access health forms here.

**If Health Services does not receive completed health forms or a student is not compliant with Rhode Island mandated vaccines, a hold will be placed on the student's account and students will not be allowed to attend classes until cleared by Health Services.

Release of Medical Information

RWU Health Services is committed to protecting student's personal health information (PHI) with the strictest confidentiality.  We will not disclose PHI to Dean's, Professors, other University staff, parents, or other parties without a student's consent except in rare circumstances as required by law or in the case of an emergency.  These exceptions include:

  • Threat of immediate danger to self or others
  • Reportable communicable illnesses, such as meningitis and sexually transmitted infections which constitute public health risks
  • When clinicians or health records are subpoenaed by the court in legal cases 

In the event of an emergency situation requiring hospitalization where it is impossible to obtain a student's consent, the parent or legal guardian will be notified by the hospital.

Students can request the release of medical information to outside providers by completing the Authorization for Disclosure of Medical Information
