Medical/Health Requirements

Requirements for Full-time Students



  • All students attending courses on Stony Brook campus must submit all immunizations requirements to the Wolfie Health Portal, demonstrating compliance with New York State Health Laws. If you have not submitted the required immunization records, there is a registration hold on your SOLAR account, and you cannot register for classes until that hold is removed . The registration hold will be removed once you complete and submit the requirements. Please  submit all immunization records to the  Wolfie Health Portal immediately to have optimal selection of classes. 

  • It is REQUIRED that this information be submitted 2-3 days after you have paid your deposit. If these requirements are not met by this deadline a late fee may be incurred, and additional enrollment will be prohibited.

  • Required forms and instructions for submission can be obtained here

  • All full-time  students must have health insurance coverage at all times without exception . Stony Brook University offers a health insurance plan for all domestic students that meet this requirement. This plan pays for most medically necessary bills, such as doctor visits, mental health counseling, prescriptions, emergency room, lab testing, diagnostic testing, surgery, hospitalization, etc. The plan covers our students anywhere in the world, every day, no matter whether on campus or on semester breaks.

You must contact the insurance office immediately if you lose your insurance coverage: (631) 632-6054 .

All students must review their health insurance policies to determine the date when the student may "age out" of a parent/guardians' policy. It is mandatory that the insurance office be informed as soon as you are aware of this aging-out date, so we may enroll the student in the University plan immediately.

All full-time students at Stony Brook are automatically billed for the University Health Insurance plan at the beginning of each semester.

Requirements for Part-time Students


All students are required to pay the SUNY Stony Brook Student Health & Counseling Fee
The fee covers comprehensive health services for both medical and mental health problems, for students and visiting scholars. It is not a substitute for health insurance. The Student Health Service building is the only location on campus where the mandatory health fee can be used. Medical Services that are beyond the scope of the Student Health Service can be obtained either at University Hospital Medical Center or through other medical providers in the community. However, the Student Health & Counseling Fee will not cover the cost of any medical services outside the Student Health Service Building. Call (631) 632-6740 for further information.
