Incoming Students

Welcome to App State! We are so excited you are joining the Mountaineer community. The Mary S. Shook Student Health Service is a primary care campus health clinic helping meet the needs of App State students

Important Dates

  • As soon as you register for classes: MedPortal, your gateway to health services, opens. 
  • July 1: Deadline for submitting your immunization records, health history form and student insurance waiver or enrollment through MedPortal.

Required Enrollment Steps

These are the necessary steps in your journey to becoming an official Mountaineer. Please complete these required enrollment steps in your MedPortal by July 1.

Submit Immunization Records
Get the required immunizations from your healthcare provider, if you have not already done so. Before attending classes and living in university housing, students must provide an immunization record as required by University Policy and North Carolina law

Complete your Health History Form
Gather all health related information (including family health history, personal health history, medications and all allergies) prior to starting this form. 

Select your Health Insurance Option
Students are required to have health insurance and must enroll in or waive the mandatory health insurance each semester. Students are automatically charged for the Student Health Insurance Plan when they register for classes and must provide proof of insurance in order to reverse the cost. 

Need help? If you have questions about selecting your health insurance option, email studentinsurance@appstate.edu or call 828-262-7463.
