NYS law requires all students to have submitted their immunization history (Measles, mumps and rubella, MMR) to the health office. The health form and additional information can be found at: https://www.yu.edu/student-life/health-wellness/temp

Student Health Insurance Requirement

Additionally, all YU students are required to have health insurance. As such, you may waive out of the YU medical insurance by submitting a waiver demonstrating comparable insurance coverage in NY or you may purchase the YU insurance plan. The form to waive out or to enroll immediately can be found at https://www.yu.edu/student-life/resources/health/insurance

Please take care of this asap.
