Information for Students

  • To ensure the health and safety of our campus community, all students intending to register for, and taking in-person classes, living on campus, or utilizing Stony Brook campus facilities are required to comply with mandatory immunization requirements (COVID-19, MMR and Meningitis). 
  • If students have not submitted the required immunization records to the Wolfie Health Portal , there is a registration hold on their SOLAR account, and they cannot register for classes until that hold is removed. The registration hold will be removed once students complete and submit the requirements noted in Student Health’s Immunizations website
