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 will be through UnitedHealthcare and the premium for the insurance policy for students who enroll beginning in the 2016 Fall term will be $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 Fall 2016 must be completed by September 7, 2016,  and should be available here beginning in mid-July. 

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 Fall 2016 semester beginning in mid-July. 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.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: The deadline to submit completed waivers for students beginning in the Fall 2016 semester will be posted here as soon as it is confirmed.
