Health Form 

Illinois law mandates all incoming students born after 1956 show documented proof of immunity to measles, rubella, mumps and tetanus/diphtheria and have verified documentation of their immunization history on file in the Student Health Services office. Please provide the month, day and year for each dose administered. If you have no verification of your immunization history, you will need to complete a new series of injections from your family doctor or health clinic. All international students should make every effort to obtain this medical history before coming to the U.S.

All information must be complete and on file with Student Health Services by the first day of a student’s first semester classes. Failure to meet this requirement will result in a Health Hold on your account. The Health Hold will be applied on the first day of class and will prevent students from adding classes to their schedule or registering for another term.

Student Health Form Instructions and Downloads

Request for Records

Current students may obtain a copy of immunization records by logging into My BenU. Go to “Self Service, Campus Personal Information, Immunization Report” and print.

Alumni may contact Student Health Services at (630) 829-6046 to request copies of immunization records. The office is open 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday during the academic year.

Wellness Education

The Student Health Services office maintains a wide variety of brochures/pamphlets and videos on wellness related topics. If you are looking for information for personal use, class projects or programming, let us know.

Self Care

Sometimes you may have a concern that can be managed without an office visit. When this occurs, we offer telephone consultation services to assist you. If you have a question, need information or are unsure about a health issue, please call us at (630) 829-6046 and speak with one of the nurses.

Personal Health Kit: It is a good idea to bring a small supply of health care items to school with you for times when our office is not open. Good things to have on hand are: Band-Aids, pain relievers (Tylenol or Advil), decongestants and cough syrup.
