Immunizations/Avoid a Hold on Your Registration

We strongly encourage you to complete your immunizations with your primary care provider prior to coming to Humboldt State University. They will be able to bill your insurance. However, if you are unable to do so the required immunizations can be obtained at the Health Center for a fee. Fees for immunizations will be billed to your student account. We do not bill insurance. A hold will be placed on your ability to register for classes unless the health center has copies of your immunization records. Please note that, even if you gave them to Admissions as part of your transcripts, you still need to file them with the health center.
