Safe, Settled and Healthy

Are You

“Safe, Settled and Healthy”

to Begin Studies at Boston University

Please be reminded that every student must provide an emergency phone number, must settle their account, and must be in compliance with state immunization requirements each semester.  Therefore, Boston University is asking all students, “Are you Safe, Settled and Healthy?” to be sure that everyone is in compliance with state and University rules.  What does “Safe, Settled and Healthy” mean?

Safe Have you entered/confirmed your BU Alert Phone Number in the MyBU Student Portal?
This number will be used by the BU Alert system to contact you in emergency situations.  You can provide the number by clicking on “Update/Confirmation” of your BU Alert Phone Information in the Address and Phone tab of the MyBU Student Portal.  You are required to update or confirm the number each semester.
Settled Have you settled your Student Account? (Have you paid your tuition and fees?) You can check your account information by clicking on the “Money Matters” tab in the MyBU Student Portal.
Healthy Have you met the Massachusetts state immunization requirements?
You must prove that you have received all vaccinations required by Massachusetts state law.  Click here to review the requirements outlined on the Student Health Services web site. Click here to access and complete the appropriate BU Health Form for your program of study.

Students who do not comply with these requirements will not be permitted to register for the following semester.

A special page has been added to the the MyBU Student Portal so you can check to see if you are in compliance with the Safe, Settled and Healthy requirements.  Go to the MyBU Student Portal, click on “Personal Tab,” then on “Compliance Status” as illustrated below.
