Student Health Insurance
If you have insurance and do not wish to be enrolled in, and charged for insurance through the College for the Spring semester only, you must file a waiver online by January 4, 2016.
Student Health Insurance Fees
Health insurance coverage is required of all undergraduate resident and nonresident students who are enrolled at least half time, excluding degree candidacy pending students. The College provides a limited coverage plan for 12 months at a cost of $1350 or a Spring semester plan for $970.
Before waiving the student health insurance, please be sure to read these important considerations.
Brochures outlining the plan and the benefits are available online.
Health Insurance Waiver
All applicable students are automatically charged the full amount for the student health insurance coverage. Students may waive the plan if other coverage is carried. Waivers must be filed with the College’s insurance broker over the Web by January 4th for cancellation of charges. Foreign students who are not permanent U.S. residents must document comparable coverage through a U.S. insurance carrier.
If you do not submit the waiver by January 4, 2016, you will automatically be enrolled in the non-refundable College insurance.
