New Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Welcome to Gallaudet University! Thank you for choosing this institution as the place to thrive socially and academically while pursuing your collegiate studies. We wish you much success.

There are a few health-related preconditions that must be satisfied prior to attending class.

All new students must:

  1. Complete the Health History and TB Assessment Forms
  2. Satisfy the vaccine requirements listed on the Health Form
  3. Either waive or enroll in the university’s student health insurance plan by logging in to Gallagher Student with your Gallaudet email/password and clicking on I WANT TO WAIVE or I WANT TO ENROLL then follow the instructions presented
  4. Access the Patient Portal at https://gu.live/portal by entering your Gallaudet username and password then upload the requested health forms
  5. Returning Undergraduate and Graduate Students

    Welcome back returning students! The next steps you need to take are determined by the length of time you were away from Gallaudet.

    If you are a returning student registering for fall classes and were an enrolled student during the previous spring semester, you will need to:

    1. Upload any updated vaccine records to the Patient Portal at https://gu.live/portal
    2. Either waive or enroll in the university’s student health insurance plan by logging in to Gallagher Student with your Gallaudet email/password and clicking on I WANT TO WAIVE or I WANT TO ENROLL then follow the instructions presented
    3. Access the Patient Portal at https://gu.live/portal by entering your Gallaudet username and password then upload the requested health forms, if applicable

    If you are a returning student registering for class but was not enrolled the previous 1 – 2 semesters (but less than a 1 year), you will need to:

    1. Satisfy any missing vaccine requirements on the Health History Form
    2. Complete the Health History Form Signature Page and TB Assessment Form if there has been no change in your health status while you were away
    3. If there has been a change in your health status, then complete the Health History and TB Assessment Forms
    4. Either waive or enroll in the university’s student health insurance plan by logging in to Gallagher Student with your Gallaudet email/password and clicking on I WANT TO WAIVE or I WANT TO ENROLL then follow the instructions presented
    5. Access the Patient Portal at https://gu.live/portal by entering your Gallaudet username and password then upload the requested health forms

    If you are a returning student registering for class but who has not attended Gallaudet for 1 year or more, you will need to submit the same requirements as a new student.
