Insurance waivers must be submitted on-line  If you submit an insurance waiver, you may deduct the health insurance charge from your balance due.

Insurance waivers must be submitted prior to the first day of classes. If you fail to submit an insurance waiver, you will be enrolled in the plan and will be held responsible for the payment of the insurance premium.

Students are billed $1,238 on their fall bill and $1,715 on their spring bill. The coverage period for the fall semester is August 1st- December 31st (5 months) and the coverage period for the spring semester is January 1st - July 31st (7 months) If you are a full time student during the fall semester and you submitted a waiver, it is not necessary to submit a waiver for the spring semester.  Waivers are valid for one academic year only.
