Student health icon

Onboard with student health

Log in to your myLafene+ patient portal to upload your insurance card and the required immunizations. State and university policy requires all students to complete the Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire and submit proof of two Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccines. If you are living in on-campus housing, you are required to also submit proof of one Meningococcal ACWY booster vaccine.

Students are invited to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination. This information helps the university make decisions about COVID-19 health and wellness guidance and supports the return to normal activities. You can upload this while you submit your other required vaccinations.
