The deadline to submit a waiver is September 20, 2019.
All AU students must have comprehensive health insurance if they are in specific categories, including full-time students, residential students, and students on F1 and J1 visas. If you have health insurance under another insurance plan that provides comprehensive coverage in Washington DC, you may file for and receive a waiver prior to the deadline.
Health insurance waivers are required every year that you are in a required category for health insurance.
If you fall into one of the required categories (such as full-time students, residential student, and international students with F1 and J1 visas), you are enrolled automatically in AU's student health insurance plan and the premium is charged to your student account.
This health insurance premium will be removed from your account if you file for and receive a waiver. To waive AU's student health insurance plan, you must have comparable coverage that meets our criteria.
If you elect to waive the student health insurance plan, you must do so before the September 20, 2019 deadline.
You will only be able to waive the student health insurance if the fee is on your student account.
