Pre-Entrance Health Requirements

Prior to your arrival at UVA, Student Health and Wellness needs information about your health status and health insurance coverage. 

  • Please note that most required forms will need to be uploaded to our HealthyHoos patient portal, which students can access via Netbadge.

  • To fulfill the health insurance requirement, students will need to use the Aetna Student Insurance portal.

  • Students should create their Netbadge ID and register their official UVA email account (Darden, Law, Mcintire, and UVA Health - please set up and use your @virginia.edu email address, not your school-specific email.) Students must activate both their virginia.edu email address and their Netbadge ID to access HealthyHoos.
