All OHSU students are required to provide documentation regarding the completion of their immunization and compliance records as identified in the Student Compliance and Drug Screening policy 50-01.15 and the OHSU Student Health Service pre-entry guidelines policy 02-01.001. Review the following steps to complete these requirements by the stated deadline.

(All requirements must be completed prior to the start of your first term)

Step 1 - Start by creating your account in Complio and order the following items right away*:
