    Health Forms

    New York State law requires all students to complete mandatory health forms and submit them to St. John’s University. Submission deadline for the Fall2021 semester is June 30.  All enrolled students are required to submit the following:

    These forms are also available on the Required Health and Immunization Forms page; and must be submitted via the online patient portal

    Please note that many students need to visit their doctor to secure these forms. Please allow time to schedule this appointment and for your doctor to complete the health forms.

    Pursuant to New York State Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167, these requirements apply to students who are studying in person, and to students who are studying online (regardless of location). If you do not submit the required health forms your course registration and Law School enrollment will be cancelled.

    All students with an F-1 or J-1 visa are required to participate in the University’s accident and sickness insurance plan. This insurance is mandatory for the student’s entire enrollment at the University. Students will be enrolled in the Health Insurance plan approximately two weeks after paying their bill and confirming their course enrollment.  If you need to see a medical provider before your enrollment is processed, you should pay the provider directly and them submit the information to the health insurance for reimbursement (minus any copay).

    When you are enrolled you will receive an email, to your St. John’s email account, from the insurer.  If you do not see it in your inbox, please check your junk mail. 

    That email will include instructions on how to create a login for their insurance policy.  
    You will need to go to  
    This should give you access to create an account.  
    You will be able to download their card after you create your account. 
    If you have trouble, please call 1-844-412-0752, for support from the Health Insurer.
