Resources for New Students

Welcome new students. You’ve come to the right place to find answers to questions about health requirements, health insurance or any health related concerns you may have. 

Health and Wellness Patient Portal

Please login to the patient portal. This will be where you can access all of the forms required of new students. You can also maintain your immunization records, communicate with us via secure message, and see a record of your services. Please complete this process by July 1.

Health Insurance and Insurance Waiver

All Tufts students are required to be covered by health insurance (it’s a Massachusetts state law). All undergraduates and graduate students who are half time or more are billed and enrolled in the student health insurance plan. If you are covered by a separate policy, it must be through a U.S.-based insurance company and comparable to the student health plan.

If you are covered by a separate policy, please complete the Health Insurance Waiver on your SIS account. This waiver process is required every year and is available June 1st - July31st.

You also need to be up to date on your immunizations to enroll in classes at Tufts. Have your Health Care Provider complete the immunization form and send it to us using the Patient Portal.
