The University has a Nurse Based Student Health Center, located on the Familian Campus, available to ALL full- and part-time students.  The Student Health Center provides health assessments, needed immunizations, TB testing, over the counter medication, health education and physician referrals.

The Health Center is staffed Monday through Thursday. After hours care is available through Peak Health Medical Group, a private physicians group or urgent care. The Student Health Center operates on a limited basis during holiday weeks, campus vacation breaks and during the summer session.


All students attending American Jewish University are charged a Student Health Fee.  This fee covers the cost of running the Student Health Center on the Familian Campus and the psychological services provided by the University.  The health fee is NOT health insurance.


All matriculated students registered for 9 or more credits per semester are required to enroll in the AJU Student Health Insurance plan or to carry alternative health insurance. Student billing statements include this charge, but students may seek a waiver and have this charge removed. You must decide whether to accept the AJU Student Health Insurance or remain with your alternative plan. If you currently have alternative health insurance that you prefer to keep, you may petition to waive out of the University's plan by going on-line to and following the instructions for seeking a waiver. You will need your ten-digit student identification number in order to sign onto the web site.

The on-line waiver period begins on Monday, July 15, 2014. The deadline to waive out for Fall Semester 2014 for students in the Fingerhut and Ziegler Schools is Friday, August 22, 2014. The deadline for students in the School of Non Profit Management and the College of Arts and Sciences is Tuesday, September 30, 2014. After September 30, 2014, no one will be able to have this charge removed from his/her fall semester bill. There will be no refunds and no exceptions.
