New Student Health Forms and Required Immunizations: FAQ

  • How do I file a vaccine exemption?

    WPI provides a process for students to submit a request for a medical or religious exemption for all required vaccinations. Students must complete a Vaccine Exemption Form and specify whether they are asking for a medical or religious exemption. If a student requests a medical exemption, they must upload a Medical Provider Exemption Letter from their healthcare provider in addition to the Vaccine Exemption Form. See the instructions below. 

    To access and upload the exemption form, please complete the following steps: 

    1. Download, print, complete, and sign the Student Vaccination Exemption Form.
    2. To upload the completed form, log into the WPI Student Health Portal 
    3. Select the upload tab; scroll down to see the drop-down list of documents available for upload. 
    4. Select "Student Vaccine Exemption Form" and upload the completed exemption form. 
    5. Select "Medical Provider Exemption Letter" from the drop-down list, select file, and upload the exemption letter if required. 
  • What is the best way for me to submit my required health forms?

    The preferred method is electronic upload to our secure health portal. To log in, use your WPI username (not your full email address) and password. Remember, always keep hard copies of these documents for your records.

  • How do I fill out the tuberculosis (TB) risk questionnaire?

    The tuberculosis risk questionnaire does not need to be filled out by your medical provider, it simply needs their name written in the appropriate space on the form. Please complete the form on your own by checking the applicable boxes. If you answer "yes" to any of the questions please reach out to your medical povider as additional testing is required.

    Our staff will review your answers and reach out to you directly if any additional actions need to be taken.

  • What is one of the required vaccines isn't offered in my country?

    Ideally, we can suggest ways for you to get your vaccine prior to coming to campus, such as going to a travel clinic or urgent care clinic. Otherwise you will have to make arrangements to get your vaccine as soon as you arrive in the United States, however, this is for extenuating circumstances only. Student Health Services typically arranges vaccination clinics once/year, typically in October, when you can get many of your vaccines (please check with your insurance company regarding coverage of vaccines). Otherwise, it will be your responsibility to get all of your required vaccines. 

  • I have my own insurance. How do I waive the WPI student health insurance?

    Information about the student health insurance plan can be found here, including information about the waiver and enrollment process.

    Please contact the Bursar’s Office through email or at 508-831-5203 for more information on waiving the WPI Student Health Insurance.

  • Will you accept my doctor’s office’s forms for physical exams and/or immunizations?

    As long as the physical is within the last calendar year and signed (electronic or e-signature is fine), we will accept them. Immunization records also need to have a signature of authorized personnel. If you had titers drawn because you do not have documentation of vaccines or illnesses, please also submit these blood results.

  • What if my physical exam or immunization is scheduled for after the July 1st deadline?

    Please make sure to upload documentation of the required forms and immunization documents as soon as possible if they are scheduled after the July 1 deadline. You will continue to receive regular communication from our office until your medical record is complete, and you are compliant with all of our required vaccines and health forms. 

    If you have a physical exam from last year, you can upload that to the WPI Student Health Portal until you obtain the updated document. 

    Please call WPI Student Health Services (SHS) at 508-831-5520 to discuss any specific questions.
