Health Insurance

Waiver Information

The health insurance waiver for the 2017-2018 academic year will be available starting June 5, 2017. If you are a full time student, student living on campus, or a student who is on an F1 or J1 visa you will automatically be billed for the health insurance. Health insurance waivers are required every year that you are in a required category for health insurance.

Health insurance is required of all full-time degree, resident, and international students with F1 and J1 visas.

  • If you fall into one of the required categories, the student health insurance premium of $1,750 is automatically assessed to your student account.
  • You will only be able to waive the student health insurance if the fee is on your student account.
  • The $1,750 premium can be removed from your account if you choose not to participate. In order to waive coverage you must provide proof of comparable coverage.
  • If you elect to waive the student health insurance plan, you must do so before the deadline.
