Before Your Arrival:
- Review and pay your fee bill. The online fee bill that you received was based on data the University had in early June. Often, adjustments to student accounts are made after June, so it is very important that you review your bill before coming to campus and that you pay any balance due. Visit bursar.uconn.edu for more information.
- Submit the Health History Form to Student Health Services including the verification that you received the meningitis vaccination. If you need to print an exemption form, or simply need more information, visit shs.uconn.edu.
