The University requires that all full-time students carry health insurance coverage. Coverage can be purchased through the University sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan or through your own comparable health insurance plan. The University sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan is designed to meet basic health care needs at an affordable cost. The open enrollment/waiver period takes place at the start of each academic year and closes with the add/drop deadline. Full time students are required to provide proof of alternate insurance by the close of add/drop if they choose not to purchase this plan.
