Required Student Health Forms

To ensure our campus community stays well and productive we require students to submit specific forms regarding their health. You can find a list of the documents you must review and/or complete and upload on the Oxford Campus Patient Portal 

Access the Oxford Campus Patient Portal

Please Note

Please be sure to access the OXFORD CAMPUS Patient Portal for all Oxford requirements. Do not use the Emory Campus portal. Oxford Student Health Service does not have access to the Emory Campus Student Health patient portal.

Once all requirements are met, Student Health will be removed from your OPUS To Do list. If it is still listed, your record is being reviewed or has incomplete or missing items.  Check your email for updates on information still needed. Students who do not meet these requirements will be subject to compliance measures which may include but not limited to the inability to register for classes. Please email Student Health Services with any questions regarding the required forms and immunizations.

Health Insurance

(Every Student, Every Year)

All Oxford College students are required to have health insurance, and all students are automatically enrolled in the Aetna Emory Student Health Insurance Plan every year. Students have the option to waive enrollment in the Aetna Emory Student Health Insurance Plan by providing documentation that their personal plan meets the minimum criteria set by Emory. Students must successfully complete the waiver process online via their OPUS account prior to the deadline. The waiver process must be completed ONLINE via OPUS each year.
