Immunizations and Health History

All Willamette University students enrolled half time or more are required to submit a Health History Form with dates of Measles Vaccination.

The information below is for all new Willamette students and explains how to submit your health history and immunization information on the Bishop Wellness Center Online Portal. This message is provided byAmy Purkey, Willamette University Associate Director Health Services.


Hello and Welcome to Willamette!

The Health History Form and Measles Immunity Information is now available on the Bishop Wellness Center Online Portal.   The deadline to submit your information is August 1st.

To use the Portal:
Use your Willamette username and ID to log on to

On your home screen you will see that you have a form to complete.


Next, you can fill in your immunization dates.  Only Measles information is required but other immunization dates are helpful to us as we take care of you while you are a student. 


ALL eligible students are automatically enrolled and charged for the Willamette Student Health Insurance Policy every academic year. Domestic (U.S.) Students with other medical insurance that meets the criteria of comparable coverage may submit an online waiver request each academic year in the Fall. The deadline to submit the online waiver for Domestic (U.S.) Students for the 2016/2017 academic year is September 12, 2016 (5:00 pm).

International Students should contact the Office of International Education at for waiver information.

Even though there is a section of the portal that includes insurance information, submitting your information here does not waive the Willamette University Student Health Insurance Plan.  The waiver website will not be open until July 25, 2016.  The deadline to waive insurance is September 12, 2016 (5pm). See our website for more information about how to waive the Willamette University Student Health Insurance Plan. 

*Enrollment/waivers for eligible students meeting the corresponding credit hours is/are annual and will apply for the entire 2016/2017 policy year. Students who waive/enroll Fall 2016 semester are choosing to waive/enroll for both Fall and Spring Semester (if eligible both Fall and Spring semester based on credit requirements), the opportunity to waive/enroll will NOT be provided again in Spring 2017 semester; Spring open enrollment and waiver period is only applicable to new incoming students or students NOT enrolled Fall 2016 semester. 

Late enrollment or waiver requests will not be accepted, no exceptions.

If you need help with the Bishop Wellness Center online portal, please call us at 503-370-6062.

We look forward to meeting you this Fall!
