Annual Health Insurance Matriculation Requirement


2021-2022 Academic Year

All matriculated students are required to have health insurance and must complete the enrollment/waiver process for each academic year.* If students have health insurance through another provider, such coverage must meet the stated minimum requirements set forth below to qualify for a waiver. If students do not have coverage through another provider that meets the minimum requirements, then they will be enrolled in the University-sponsored student health insurance plan. Once enrolled, the University- sponsored plan will be in effect for the entire academic year. Students may only terminate the University-sponsored plan insurance coverage if they have a qualifying life changing event.


Students who satisfy one of the criteria set forth below are exempt from the health insurance requirement and no action will be required:

  • If enrolled in a certificate program without a clinical or experiential component.
  • If enrolled in an online-only program without any on-campus presence or clinical or experiential component.
  • If enrolled in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (with the exception of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program)

*Dates of insurance coverage and billing periods will vary by academic program.
