I understand that as per New Jersey Medical School policy, every accepted student will be required to complete the Student Health Immunization requirements and submit the necessary forms as instructed prior to matriculation. I also understand that I will be unable to use my student health insurance to cover the cost of these requirements because satisfaction of these requirements is due in advance of student health insurance activation.
