Waiver Information

The health insurance waiver for the 2018 spring semester will be available starting December 1, 2017. Students who submitted waivers for the fall 2017 semester are not required 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.
