Student Health Insurance

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 that are registered full time, as well. as graduate students that are registered full time and living on campus.

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. The premium for the insurance policy for students who are enrolled in the 2022-2023 academic year is $1,845. The coverage period extends from August 1, 2022 to July 31, 2023.
