Mandatory health insurance for domestic graduate students

All domestic degree-seeking graduate students, who are enrolled in six or more graduate 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.

International students should contact the Office of International Students and Scholars for information regarding health insurance.
