Entrance Health Requirements 

All NJCU students MUST submit a completed Entrance Health Record form to the H&WC. This information is utilized to establish a student's medical file and document compliance with state immunization laws. New Jersey State Law requires all students, both undergraduate and graduate, comply with current immunization regulations by submitting proof of immunization, immunity, or filing for a valid exemption for the required vaccines. Detailed information about the required immunizations or valid exemptions can be found on the Entrance Health Record form. Failure to comply will result in a hold being placed on all future registration for classes. 

Student Health Insurance 

New Jersey City University offers a Student Health Insurance plan through the Aetna Insurance Company. The Affordable Care Act, a Federal regulation that took effect on January 1, 2014, requires that all individuals must have health care insurance coverage or be subject to a penalty. Learn more.

Meningitis Vaccine: Requirement for Campus Housing

All new students who plan to live in campus housing must present documented proof of one adult dose of the currently recommended Meningitis (Menactra/Menveo) vaccination given within the last 5 years as a condition of residence at NJCU. Students who fail to submit this information will not be permitted to move into campus residential facilities until this is completed. 

Meningitis Information 

The State of New Jersey requires that all new students be provided with information about Meningitis and will be required to provide proof of Meningococcal B vaccination. Each new student will complete a survey indicating whether or not they plan to receive the vaccination. Meningitis information and the survey is located on the NJCU Entrance Health Record
