  • All full-time students, residential students, and students on F1 and J1 visas at AU must have insurance that provides comprehensive coverage in Washington, DC. If you're in a required category, you will be enrolled automatically in AU's student health insurance plan. This premium is charged to your student account.
  • If you have another insurance plan that provides comprehensive coverage in Washington DC, you may request a waiver and, if approved, the charge (e.g. the health insurance premium) will be removed from your student account.
  • You must request a health insurance waiver every year that you are required to have health insurance. 
  • After you submit your waiver request, it will be reviewed and a decision made within 5 business days. Please be aware that approval is not automatic. You will receive an email when your waiver decision has been made.
  • Do you still have questions? Do you find that aspects of the process are difficult or unclear? Please read through these Frequently Asked Questions. You will find many answers there — along with contact information for customer support, waiver appeals, and more information to help you out.
