For Incoming Students

Pre-Admission Health Policy

Dickinson College requires that incoming students comply with the Pre-Admission Health Policy:  complete the online medical history form, submit the completed TB Risk Assessment form, and provide documentation of the required immunizations.  A physical exam is optional.  
The deadline date for the Spring Semester is Jan. 7, 2019.

Patient Portal

Please be aware that students will need to register for a new account through the patient portal (this is separate from the Gateway registration). This portal is for students only and will be used for confidential health communications between the students and providers. If you are a parent assisting your student through this process, please do not register on their behalf. This step must be completed by students alone. Please refer to the Instructions for Registering a New Account.  If you have questions about registration, please contact us at or 717-245-1663.

Instructions for Registering a New Account

You may download the health forms here or from the Patient Portal.  A Health Forms Guide is provided to assist you with the requirements below:

  1. Complete the medical history form located on the Wellness Center Patient Portal homepage  by logging in with your username and password that you created during the registration process.
  2. Enter your immunization information on the Patient Portal and submit a copy of your immunization record or the immunization record form
  3. Submit the completed TB risk assessment/testing form signed by your healthcare provider.
