Been offered acceptance to a program? What's next?
Preparing for your program
Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to a program within the School of Health Professions. Here are next steps. Detailed instructions will be provided in your acceptance letter.
Criminal background check
A background check is required for all University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio students who have been accepted to a program. Directions for this process will be sent in your acceptance letter.
University policy mandates full immunization prior to registration. Plan ahead; some immunizations are a series of injections that can take up to six months to complete (the hepatitis B series is an example of an immunization series that takes six months). Contact the Student Health Center at 210-567-9355 for additional questions.
- UT Health Science Center Student Health Center immunization policies
- UT Health Science Center meningitis vaccine policy
Students are required to have their immunizations recorded on the HSC student immunization form. Download the required HSC student immunization form here. It must be signed by your healthcare provider.
Please send your completed student immunization records to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pay tuition deposit fee
Directions for this process will be included in the acceptance letter.
Research financial aid
Contact the Office of Financial Aid directly with any financial-aid related questions.
Buy health insurance
The UT System Board of Regents requires that you maintain a valid major medical insurance policy while you are a registered student at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio. If you do not have your own policy, you will be automatically enrolled in a group plan selected by UT System. The premiums and rates vary by semester. Please contact Student Life for more information on insurance requirements.
You must contact the Office of International Services immediately after you have been accepted. You will have to complete visa application paperwork.
