University Requirements

Health Insurance

The University believes that a solid health plan is vital to the well-being of our students. As such, all full-time undergraduate students are required to carry medical insurance and are automatically enrolled in a PacificSource Student Health Plan. Students with comparable existing health insurance coverage may complete an online Health Insurance Waiver every semester.

According to Oregon State Law, students are required to show proof of receiving two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine. The state also recommends (but does not require) that students receive additional vaccinations.

The University of Portland is no longer requiring students to be vaccinated for COVID-19. The University strongly recommends students be fully vaccinated and stay up-to-date on their vaccinations by receiving the most recent recommended boosters.
