Health Forms

All first-year and transfer students are required to submit the Health Examination Form prior to arrival on campus. This form should be filled out by the student’s primary medical provider within the last year.

Other physical forms may be substituted, if all areas of the Northland form are addressed. This form is used by Health Services to monitor what types of health conditions are present on campus and for individual health advice. It is not shared with others, except in cases of emergency.

First-year athletes must also submit an Athletes Medical History Form. This form can be completed by the student and is recommended to review the form with their medical provider.

Northland College is required by the State of Wisconsin to keep records of the immunization status of students living on campus for Meningococcal disease and Hepatitis B, but a complete set of immunization records is preferred.

Please review the Hepatitis B and Meningococcal Disease Information and complete the immunization form.

Students who have not received these vaccines can:

  • receive the vaccine prior to arriving on campus
  • receive the vaccine on campus through Health Services
  • formally waive the vaccine for reasons of medical, personal, or religious conviction. Waivers must be signed by the student (if over 18) and be submitted each year.
