YU Health and Wellness


Office of Student Health

The health and wellness of each of our students is a top priority and the Yeshiva University Office of Student Health supports student health with a variety of initiatives.

Student Health staff reviews immunization history of entering students to ensure compliance with New York State Public Health Law, which requires that all students have proof of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) immunization history and complete a meningitis acknowledgment form.

Please find the latest MMR Immunization/Meningitis Form here: YU Student Immunization Form

Completed forms should be uploaded within your admissions application in the Supplemental Items section at

Employees and students who test positive for COVID-19 should follow the CDC Guidelines regarding preventing the spread of respiratory viruses, which states:

Go back to your normal activities when, for at least 24 hours, both are true:

  • Your symptoms are getting better overall, and
  • You have not had a fever (and are not using fever-reducing medication)

Full CDC guidance is available here: About Preventing Spread of Respiratory Viruses When You’re Sick | Respiratory Illnesses | CDC

Students and employees working in a healthcare setting must follow the policies of the specific settings in which they are currently working or interning

CDC guidance for healthcare personnel, including students in field practice is available here:

When experiencing any illness or other need to be absent, employees should communicate with their supervisor or dean and students should communicate with their faculty.

Yeshiva University requires that all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled for 6 credits or more have health insurance. If you are a US Citizen, you may be enrolled in a family or employer plan. If your plan has a network of providers in New York City, you can apply for a waiver. You will get an email sent to your student email account with instructions on how to access the waiver/enrollment form.

For domestic students who are not currently insured through family or employer plans and for international students, Yeshiva University has partnered with UHP to provide health insurance through Aetna that meets ACA and Visa Requirements. 

Students in Online Degree Programs are exempt from/ineligible for the Yeshiva University Student Health Insurance Plan.
