Did UB Receive My Health Records?

New/Incoming Students

Once your immunization records have been received, processed, reviewed and deemed compliant with requirements, your health holds will be removed; this will be reflected in your HUB Student Center in real time. This usually occurs 5-7 business days after we receive your compliant records (although it can take a few extra business days during the 3 months prior to the start of a semester).

Students will not be individually contacted to confirm receipt of records. Please check the HUB system for the current status of your holds.

If your paperwork is not in compliance, you will receive an electronic message  from Health Services. This message is sent to the student’s email address.

Please contact us only if you have a hold on your account for a prolonged period of time after submitting your records/forms:

  • More than 7 business days (10 business days during high volume months of June, July & August) after faxing or emailing.
  • More than 3 weeks after mailing

Returning Students in a Health-Related Program

Please allow 10 business days for Health Services to process your records and update UB Learns.
