Waive Your School's Insurance


Welcome to the Waive Your School’s Insurance Center!

This page is for those students who wish to opt-out (waive) out of the coverage under their school’s student insurance plan. The school’s student insurance plan can only be waived if the student has coverage under another acceptable insurance plan.

The first step to waive out of your school’s student insurance coverage is to verify that you are an eligible student.


2020 – 2021 School Year



Hard Waiver Student Eligibility

  • All St. Augustine Campus Domestic Undergraduate Students taking 12 or more credit hours


Are automatically enrolled into this insurance plan at registration unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished through our waiver process.

Students must actively attend classes for at least the first 31 days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home study, correspondence and online courses do not fulfill the Eligibility requirements that the student actively attend classes.

You must enroll or waive the school-sponsored insurance plan each academic year. It is important for you to make an informed health assessment each year. Make sure you are not left without appropriate health coverage – it could hinder your academic progress.

Important: If you do not enroll or waive the insurance by the waiver deadline, you will be billed for and automatically enrolled into the College sponsored plan. If you do not enroll for or waive coverage by the designated deadline you will be considered non-compliant. Once you are enrolled there are no cancellations or refunds. (Automatic enrollment will occur AFTER the waiver deadline.)


Please Note
:  If you waive the insurance you will not be eligible to enroll until the following school year unless you experience a Qualifying Life Event.
NOTE: All Part-time students and one semester international exchange students, are NOT eligible and cannot enroll in this plan.

Begin the waiver process by following the instructions below.


International Students
