Health Insurance Waiver

The University requires all full-time undergraduate students, graduate students in the School of Health Sciences, and all International students to maintain health insurance coverage. In order to guarantee our students have coverage, the University automatically bills an annual health insurance plan each fall semester. If a student has their own coverage, they can waive the University's coverage by completing the online waiver. Students who have waived previously need to submit an annual waiver each year.

If you have private health insurance coverage and do not wish to participate in the University-sponsored health insurance plan, you must complete the online health insurance waiver before the annual waiver deadline of Friday, September 12, 2014.

Students are required to waive coverage annually. Even if you believe you provided information directly to the Student Health Center, the only way to waive health insurance coverage is to complete the annual online waiver.
