Student Health Requirements

Immunization Requirement

Prior to enrolling at USD, all incoming students must comply with institutional immunization and TB screening requirements (TB questionnaire and proof of MMR vaccine). Visit the Student Health Center Immunization and Vaccines Requirements website for detailed instructions.  Login to your MyWellness portal to complete the mandatory TB screening questionnaire and upload your immunization record.  Specific immunization questions should be directed to the Student Health Center using the MyWellness portal or by calling (619) 260-4595. We strongly encourage incoming students to complete this process as soon as possible and no later than the due date of  Friday, August 14, 2020.

Student Health Insurance Requirement

All law students enrolled in eight (8) or more credits are required to have health insurance while enrolled at the University of San Diego. This requirement ensures that students in need of health and/or mental health care beyond the scope of services provided at USD, or in case of a medical emergency, can access the appropriate resources in the community. 
At the beginning of every academic year in which you are registered for classes, the USD Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) premium will be charged to your USD Student Account.

To remove this charge, you can waive coverage if you already have other insurance that is comparable to the USD SHIP plan. If you need insurance please review the SHIP and if it meets your needs, actively enroll to ensure you are covered by the start of classes. The due date to complete this process is Monday, September 14, 2020

Failure to enroll or waive coverage by the deadline will result in you being enrolled in the annual SHIP and responsible for paying the annual premium charged to your USD Student Account. Please note that law students enrolled in fewer than eight (8) credits are NOT eligible for the requirement and CANNOT enroll in the SHIP. 

For any questions regarding the Student Health Insurance Plan, contact Gallagher Student Health through their online Customer Support Form or by calling (617) 769-6082 or toll-free at (877) 241-4649.
