Immunization Compliance Requirement
The Maine Post-Secondary School Immunization Law (22 MRSA §6359) requires that students who attend school full time submit documentation of the following immunizations:
• 2 doses of Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine given on or after first birthday. (Proof of immunity to all three diseases is also acceptable.)
• 1 dose of Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td) or Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap) given within the last 10 years.

Health Services offers more than standard healthcare! Among our staff is a part-time Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner who can diagnose and treat mental health diagnoses. Students interested in Psychological Evaluation or will be seeking Psychiatric Medication Management services upon arrival to campus, should meet with a UHS Nurse Practitioner or UCS psychotherapist to obtain a referral. Students without a referral will be scheduled to see one of the Nurse Practitioners or referred to Counseling Services. Telehealth options are also available!

University Health Services can connect incoming students with a variety of options available to them and check one more thing off that pesky to-do list.

University Health Services does not discriminate based on insurance status. If you are uninsured, you have options. Contact our office for details.
We accept and bill all insurance based upon information presented at the time of appointment. Possession of insurance does not guarantee coverage. It is the patient’s responsibility to verify their plan and coverage prior to booking an appointment. Payment is not accepted at the time of appointment. Our third-party billing agent will send a bill directly to the patient after insurance is billed.
Before moving to campus, students should consider gathering their medical records from their provider(s) and submit them to University Health Services (UHS). This is to ensure a smooth coordination of care while attending the University should a student need to access UHS. Students can also use our online Medical Records service to communicate with their UHS provider directly, fill out required forms, upload insurance cards, and access portions of their medical records.
