All new, full-time graduate students are required to submit a Health Data Form (HDF) to Student Health before they matriculate and by the deadline.
Please have your physician complete and sign the form, and mail it back to Health Services (Rice University Student Health Service, 6100 Main Street, MS-760, Houston, TX 77005, USA). Keep a copy for your records.
If you have not had a physical exam within the last year, a physical will be required to complete the form.
If you are coming as an early matriculate, your HDF must be turned in prior to your arrival.
Please be advised that new students under the age of 22 will need to show proof of a meningitis vaccination ten days before the semester starts.
