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  health insurance requirement. 

The annual cost for the health insurance for 2013-14 is $1050. 

The annual cost for the health insurance for 2014-15 is TBA late April/early May.
