Health Requirements for New Graduate Students

Your first interaction with Health Services will be the health requirements that you must meet as an incoming student, which will begin our partnership in caring for your health while you are at Brown.

The deadline for submission is July 1 for first year and transfer students (January 2nd for mid year transfers).

If you haven't done so already, activate your Brown account. You will need your Banner identification number in order to activate your electronic services. This number was assigned to you when you applied for admission to Brown. If you need additional assistance, please contact the Computing Accounts and Passwords Office at 401-863-4357.

For continuity of care, we request that students forward their past medical records for any chronic, ongoing or serious medical condition. If you have a copy you can upload to the Brown Health Services Patient Portal. If you are unable to upload, fax the forms to 401-863-3321 or mail to:
