Health Insurance Requirement
University policy states that all full-time, undergraduate
students are required to have health insurance. Students
must enroll in the health plan OR waive the requirement online
by providing comparable health insurance information at
the beginning of each academic year. The waiver must be
successfully completed each year by the first of July to prevent
the charge from appearing on the first E-Bill for the fall term
(which is published mid-July). The waiver does NOT apply
to undergraduate international students.
For further information and to access the online
waiver, please go to
