You are here:  MyUSJ  

All full-time undergraduate, School of Pharmacy and Physician Assistant Studies students will have a charge on their USJ student account for the annual student insurance premium (rates below).  Full-time students in the Program for Adult Learners and any Graduate students who living on-campus are also included in this requirement.  Students who are currently enrolled in a comparable plan may decline by performing the annual online waiver here.  Please be advised that the credit will not post to your account on a real-time basis.  However, the earlier you perform the waiver, the earlier a credit will appear on your account.  The final waiver deadline is September 15th, 2017.  If you do not qualify for or complete a waiver by the deadline, you will be enrolled in the plan.

Annual fees:

Undergraduate Insurance Fee:  $1948.00
Graduate (SOP/PA/Resident) Insurance Fee:  $3045.00

Those who will be enrolling can find plan materials posted at the same web site. Materials for the 2017-2018 plan year will be posted in July on the Gallagher Student Health web site.

IMPORTANT: There has been a carrier change. The new carrier is National Guardian Life; the Preferred Provider Network is Cigna.

NOTE: When you visit the Gallagher Student Health web site for the first time you will be asked to create an account. This is entirely separate from your USJ account and you do not need to use any USJ affiliated passwords or user names.


Password Reset Tool

We have redesigned our password reset tool to be easier to use!  The new tool allows you to:

  • Change your password from anywhere
  • Reset your password if you’ve forgotten it
  • (NEW) Unlock your account if it becomes locked
    • After unlocking your account you will need to reset your password

 In order to gain access to the new features, you will need to re-register with the system:

  1. Visit
  2. Log in with your USJ username and password (leave “log on to:” as STJOSEPH)
  3. Click the Enrollment tab
  4. Answer the two supplied questions and enter two more of your own

You must enroll and supply answers to 4 questions in order to be able to reset your password or unlock your account in the future.

We hope this tool is easier to use and improves upon what was provided last year.

NEW!! MyUSJ Login Procedure

The Office of Information Technology has been working to try to reduce the number of usernames and passwords you need to remember.  Last summer we transitioned Blackboard to use your USJ email address and password to login.  This summer we’ve been working to make the same change with myUSJ.  One less password for you to remember makes life a little less complicated on campus!

Beginning on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016 your password to log into myUSJ will be the same as your email password.  Your username will remain the same (your USJ email address).

If you login to MyUSJ with something other than a USJ email address, you will continue to login with your existing credentials (until you receive a MyUSJ email address.)  This change only impacts those who login using their USJ email address as their User Name.

If you experience any issues with these changes, please contact the Helpdesk at 860-231-5310 or [email protected].
