Health insurance (dom.)

All domestic degree-seeking graduate students, who are enrolled in six or more credits (regardless of the course level) in a semester, will be automatically enrolled and billed for the University-sponsored health insurance for each term they are eligible (fall & spring/summer).

If a student has other comparable coverage and would like to waive out of the student health insurance, it is the student’s responsibility to complete the University online waiver form prior to the deadline. If approved, a health insurance waiver is good for the current academic year only. A new waiver must be submitted each academic year. The University also offers optional dental and vision insurance plans.

The department through which a graduate assistantship (GA) is granted contributes a percentage of the health insurance cost. A 20-hour GA is paid at 100 percent. A 15-hour GA is paid at 75 percent. A 10-hour GA is paid at 50 percent. The student is responsible for the remaining amount.

Please read the the health insurance policy page for more information.

Health insurance (Int'l)

It is University policy that international students have health insurance coverage with appropriate repatriation and medical evacuation provisions. For the fall semester insurance coverage normally begins mid-August and ends mid-January of the following year. Spring/summer coverage begins about mid-January and ends mid-August. The exact dates may change every year. If students are arriving early for their first semester at the University, they may want to use travel insurance until their health insurance coverage begins.

Please visit the Office for International Students and Scholars for more information.

Below are additional fees that may be appropriate for your calculations. Please note: Late fees will be applied for past-due balances.
