Student Health Insurance

Each student attending our traditional program at University Campus full time (12 or more credit hours) is required to carry health insurance. This policy applies to commuter students registered full time as well.

Automatic Enrollment

To assist students in following this policy, the university automatically enrolls students in the university-endorsed health insurance plan and bills their student accounts. Coverage is through UnitedHealthcare and the premium for the insurance policy for students who enrolled in the 2018 Spring term is $1,200. The coverage period generally extends from August 1 through July 31 of the following year.

Already Have Your Own Insurance?

Students with their own insurance through a group or individual plan may waive the coverage and avoid the fee. To waive the insurance, students should complete the online waiver process. Insurance waivers can only be submitted online. Insurance waivers for students enrolling in Spring 2018 must be completed by January 26, 2018. CLICK HERE to access the insurance waiver.

Note: International students may not waive this coverage unless they have coverage with a U.S. provider.

Important Dates

WAIVER OPENS: The online waiver process will be available for students entering in the Spring 2018 semester through mid-January. PLEASE NOTE: Students will not have access to the waiver process until they have been registered full time. Students will receive an email when they are able to complete the waiver process.

  • You will be asked to provide detailed information about your current coverage (Insurance Company Name, Policy Number, Claims Address, Primary Subscriber/Policyholder’s Name).
  • You will be asked to upload a picture of your health insurance ID card.   Waivers submitted without a current ID card will be denied.
