Please contact the student health insurance representative for your academic program if you experience any of the following:

  • Your Campus Key or Date of Birth was not accepted
  • You gave incorrect information about your current health care coverage
  • You encountered other difficulties while attempting to complete the process

NOTE:

If you receive a status of "Waiver Denied" it means that your waiver has NOT been approved for the 2014-15 academic year.You will need to either enroll in the student health insurance plan or enroll in another plan that meets the minimum requirements.  If you choose to enroll in the student health insurance plan, you should go back to the online enrollment/waiver site at http://www.firststudent.com/ and complete an enrollment for the 2014-15 academic year.  If you purchase another plan that meets the minimum requirements, you must contact your student health insurance representative to reset your information in the online enrollment/waiver site before you can go back to http://www.firststudent.com/ to complete a waiver for your new plan.

Please note that your health insurance requirement is NOT satisfied until you receive a status of “waiver approved” or you enroll in the student health insurance plan.
