The State of Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), the Hawai‘i Administrative Rules, Chapter 11-157 requires all students to meet health requirements before they attend any post-secondary institution in the State of Hawaii. For more information, please visit the State of Hawaii Department of Health vaccines and immunizations website.
Certificate of TB (Tuberculosis) examination, MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella), and Varicella (chickenpox), and Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis) immunization clearances are REQUIRED before you can register for in-person classes.
- TB (Tuberculosis) Clearance: TB Clearance was obtained twelve months before instruction or before or after age sixteen.
- MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella): Two doses of the Measles vaccine are required, with at least one of the two being Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine. Doses are required to be administered after the age of 12 months and spaced at least one month apart. Doses given before 1968 are not valid. Students born before 1957 are exempt from this immunization requirement. In compliance with state law, we can no longer accept Mumps IgG blood tests as proof of immunity.
- Varicella (chickenpox): Two doses are required. Students born in the United States before 1980 are exempt from this immunization requirement. A signed, documented diagnosis or verification of a history of vaccine disease or herpes zoster by a practitioner may be substituted for a record of varicella vaccination. An MD, PA, DO, or NP must confirm evidence of varicella disease.
- Tdap (Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis): One dose of Tdap administered after age 10.
The University of Hawaiʻi has partnered with Med+Proctor for the clearance of Health Immunization Records. As of spring 2023, all incoming students must use Med+Proctor to submit their Health Clearance/Immunization records.
To submit your records for clearance, use the following instructions to create your Med+Proctor account:
Step One: Register
- Ensure you have been admitted and have a HAWAII.EDU Username before completing this process. Click here if you need assistance with finding your username.
- Then go to Med+Proctor to register for an account.
Step Two: Gather your documents
- If you have your health clearance records, you may upload that to Med+Proctor. Or if documentation is not available, you may download the UH Health Clearance Form and have a licensed medical provider complete the form. (A licensed provider can sign the form; it does not have to be the provider who originally vaccinated you.)
Step Three: Upload
- Once you've collected all the necessary documents and/or your form has been completed and signed by a healthcare provider, log back into your account and upload it to Med+Proctor. (If you have proof of immunization from a pharmacy, you may upload those, and Med+Proctor will be able to verify this information.)
Questions and Support
- If you have difficulty using MedProctor, you may contact MedProctor between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday. During these hours, you can chat with their support agents directly from their support site or while completing your student workflow. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and their support agents to take care of you.
**Note: YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY FOR MED+PROCTOR SERVICES. However, students may opt into a Med+Proctor membership for a one-time fee of $10. Membership provides lifetime access to your TB and immunization data. If you do not wish to take advantage of the membership, when asked to submit your records, choose the gray button at the bottom, which says “No, thank you. I do not want access to my documents.”
Running Start and Early Admit students from public or private high schools will NOT need to submit Health Clearances provided they have up-to-date clearances from their respective high schools.
Early Admit homeschool students are required to turn in forms.
