Health Requirements for New Students

Here are a few things to do and know before you come to campus:

  • All students must complete the required medical paperwork prior to arriving on campus. Students can access the required forms through their Medicat account. Review Health Forms & Policies for a full listing of forms due, important deadlines, and information on how to access Medicat.
  • Out-of-state students should contact their insurance company to ensure comprehensive coverage (not just emergency coverage) while they are at school in Maryland, or should consider purchasing the Student Health Insurance Plan available through United Health Care.
  • Refill any medications and consider switching your prescription to a local pharmacy.
  • If a student has a chronic medical problem, they should check with your insurance company for physicians in the Towson area and schedule an initial appointment with them for care while in school.
  • If a student has a mental health provider, they should identify a provider in the Towson area and schedule an initial appointment with them during the first few weeks of school to continue care.
  • For students taking ADD/ADHD medications, make arrangements now with the counselor/psychiatrist for appointments during breaks and for receiving medications. Goucher Student Health does not prescribe ADHD medications.
