Health Clearance Requirement

If you are planning to enroll in only online courses, you can disregard the regular health clearance requirements/vaccines.

If you are planning to enroll in in-person or hybrid courses, you must submit all your health clearance documents to Student Medical Services before being able to register:

The State of Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 11 (Chapter 157 and 164.2) mandates health requirements be met in order to attend a post-secondary institution. New requirements are reflected on the Health Requirements Form effective July 1, 2020.

  • Continuously enrolled (Fall to Spring or Spring to Fall) students transferring within the University of Hawaii system, who have had no break in enrollment, will NOT be required to resubmit health clearance information for registration purposes.
  • Students changing home institutions, and Auto Admit recipients within the University of Hawaii system will NOT be required to resubmit health clearance information for registration purposes.
  • Beginning with the Fall 2020 semester, students entering campus housing for the first time (21 years or younger) will need to submit the record of the Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine. Age exemptions will be given to students 22 years and older.
  • Returning or graduate students who have taken a semester off will need to submit the new immunization requirements.

About HW Holds

Having an HW hold makes students eligible to register for online classes only. To register for in-person or hybrid classes, you must submit all outstanding health clearances to the UH Hilo Student Medical Services Department. The Health Requirements Form (PDF) is available to ensure all clearances are completed. Please contact the Student Medical Services Department for questions about which clearances are still outstanding.
