Medical Entrance Requirements
Please access the Medicat Patient Portal where you will be given instructions on how to complete your medical records. All medical forms must be submitted through Medicat.
Access the Medicat patient portal by using the same username and password that you use to access your FDU student account. If you are having technical difficulties accessing Medicat please contact the Help Desk at 973-443-8822.
Medical Records are due on the dates as seen below:
- Fall Semester: July 15
- Spring Semester: December 1
- Summer Semesters: April 15
Depending on what type of student you are (resident, commuter, nursing, or off-site), there are different requirements. Please complete and submit the appropriate forms.
Off-site students: Students other than nursing students who are taking classes at an off-site location (FDU Off-Campus Sites explained) only need to submit the Off-Site Student Immunization Record. If you are taking classes on the Metropolitan or Florham Campus you are NOT an off-site student. You must submit the COMMUTER packet of forms. If you are a nursing student you must submit the NURSING packet of forms, even if your classes are off-site or online.
