Waiver Information

The fall waiver period ended on September 19th. If you were billed for the student health insurance for the fall, please email shc@american.edu. We will only be able to credit your account for the spring and summer portion of the health insurance at this time.

If you are a new student for the spring 2017 semester, or were billed for the health insurance for the first time, the health insurance waiver process will begin on December 1st.

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

  • 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.
