International visiting students can opt in to live on-campus. However, it is important to note that on-campus housing is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Many students also choose to find their own apartments and off-campus housing. The island of O'ahu offers many different living arrangements--from the fast-paced city lifestyle of Honolulu to the quiet beach town of Kailua. Information on housing options can be found HERE.

 

STEP VI. HEALTH REQUIREMENTS

· Review health clearance requirements and submit form D and form E through Med+Proctor

State of Hawai‘i law mandates that certain health requirements be cleared before students can enter into postsecondary institutions. Students must print and bring both form D and E to their medical provider. The medical practitioner will review the requirements, enter the required information, and sign each form. For students who do not have a US Licensed Physician, please leave that line of the form blank.  Upon arrival, the HPU Health Clinic (or any other US Licensed Physician) can review the document and provide the final, official sign-off. 

To view and download form D and form E, visit this page

Note:

1. Students who will be enrolled at HPU for fewer than 120 days are not required to complete the TB portion of Form D’ 

2. MCV portion of Form E is only required for students who will live on-campus.

3. Both forms should be submitted through Med+Proctor.

International students are required to have health insurance as a condition of enrollment at HPU. In order to show proof of adequate coverage, students must submit a completed International Student Health Insurance Waiver. The waiver verifies that students have health insurance and comparable coverage through their own insurance plan. Waivers must be submitted to the Office of International Students and Scholars (iss@hpu.edu) by the appropriate deadlines to receive clearance for the health insurance requirement and medical insurance verification fee. More information about the health insurance requirement and waiver form can be found here
