Health Insurance Information

Student Health Insurance information for the 2015-2016 AY is now available on the University Health Plans website. Coverage is effective August 15, 2015:


All students are required to be covered by health insurance, and you will automatically be enrolled and billed for the school's Student Health Insurance Plan. If you are covered under another comparable health insurance plan, you may waive the school's health insurance plan by completing the on-line waiver form. This waiver form must be completed by September 30, 2015. WAIVER FORMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THIS DATE.


Additionally, there is an optional dental care plan and vision plan which is available. Review the information that is listed on the left bar under “Optional Plans”. Please note the deadlines to submit payment for either of these plans.
