✓ Collection of payment to the representative national student union
The National Union of Israeli Students has been recognized one year ago as the student union representing students nationwide, after representing students for over 80 years.
The Student Union deals with all aspects of life concerning students and young people in Israel, from promoting an academic policy and assistance for special populations through mass transit reforms and housing for students and young people to social involvement and scholarships.
In light of this recognition, as defined in the amendment to the Student Rights Law, from the 2019 academic year in accordance with the directive of the Council for Higher Education-Planning & Budget Committee, every undergraduate and graduate student will be required to pay an obligatory fee of NIS 10 to the National Union of Israeli Students.
These funds will be used by the Student Union for the betterment of student life and the individual student, and will give the union the leeway to realize those goals and objectives. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Union offices.
✓ Students wishing to join the gym
(subject to enrollment for courses in each semester and payment of the welfare fee) are required to present a medical certificate signed by an attending physician or a checkup from a sports institute when coming to work out at the gym. Please note: Without updating the membership system, you will not be allowed entry to the gym.
✓ Students may waive welfare services if they notify to this effect in advance and no later than September 15, 2019. The notification must be sent to the Student Accounts Unit by email: email@example.com
