Health Insurance Requirement

Johnson University requires all full-time undergraduate students taking courses on campus to carry health insurance.

Students will be automatically enrolled in the University’s health insurance plan unless they provide proof of coverage. Students will be required to either complete an online health insurance waiver form, providing their current health insurance provider, or enroll with the University’s student health insurance provider for the current academic year. Both the waiver form and the enrollment form are available on the student portal.

Students who enroll in student health insurance for the fall term pay for a 12-month policy that begins the first day of class. Students who begin in the spring term pay a reduced amount due to the reduced length of the policy.

Health Insurance Coverage

The health insurance provided through Johnson includes unlimited major medical coverage after a $250 annual in-network/$600 annual out-of-network deductible. Most claims involve an 80/20% coinsurance for in-network providers and 60/40% coinsurance for out-of-network providers. There is a $25.00 co-pay per office visit.

Policy effective dates for the 2019-2020 academic school year:

2019 Fall term 08/01/2019 – 07/31/2020
2020 Spring Term 01/01/2020 – 07/31/2020

Counseling and Mental Health

College can be a wonderful time, but it can also be a challenge. Our campuses offer support for students who are struggling.


The Tennessee campus has a University Counseling Center, located in Myrtle Hall, which offers personal counseling at no charge to students while ensuring utmost confidentiality in all matters. Counseling services are provided by professional counseling faculty and by graduate students who are under the careful supervision of faculty members.

The University Counseling Center also offers a broad range of preventive, remedial, and developmental counseling services to the community. Payment is based on income. Counselors in the UCC are trained to ethically integrate faith into the helping process.

The UCC is generally open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with closings and limited scheduling based on the academic calendar of Johnson University. If you are interested in receiving counseling through the University Counseling Center, please complete an Intake Form at the UCC.

The Florida campus has agreements with several local Christian counselors and counseling centers.
