Student Health Insurance Waiver Information

The health insurance waiver for the spring 2018 semester will be available December 1, 2017.

The deadline to submit a waiver is February 16, 2018.

If you previously waived your health insurance for the fall semester, you do not need to submit another waiver for the spring.

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 $1,035 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 $1,035 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.
