Health Matters

Health Insurance: All international students on the F-1 and J-1 visas are automatically enrolled in Creighton's Student Medical Insurance Plan upon registration. There are no exceptions to this process unless the Office of International Programs receives documentation that indicates the student is covered by a government sponsored U.S. insurance.

Immunization Requirements:

Creighton University requires immunization against specific communicable diseases to protect the entire campus community.

Students born on or after January 1, 1957, are required to provide accurate documentation of two (2) vaccines for Measles, Mumps and Rubella. (MMR). Documentation must include the month and year of the immunization.  History of illness does not meet this requirement.
