Immunization and Medical Insurance

To successfully register at St. John's University, international students must complete all Immunization and medical insurance forms issued by the University.

New York State Public Health Law requires all students born on or after January 1, 1957, to be immunized against measles, mumps and rubella. Students must submit documentation of two doses of the measles and one dose of the mumps and rubella before classes begin. You will not be permitted to attend classes without proper documentation.

Medical Insurance
Upon registering at St. John's University, all F-1 and J-1 students are automatically enrolled in a mandatory medical insurance plan. (Students in other non-immigrant statuses are welcome to purchase the plan if desired.) For more information please visit our page on Health Insurance.

The plan provides a $100,000 maximum accident and sickness benefit, including medical evacuation and repatriation. You will receive a brochure describing the plan in detail at Orientation.

The charge is billed with other University fees at the time you register. Coverage may also be purchased directly through the insurance company for dependants of F-1 and J-1 students at an additional cost.
