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.

Are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.
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.
Begin the waiver process below.

You may waive coverage under this plan if you have health insurance that meets all of the University plan requirements and is approved by the University. You will need to provide information about your coverage in the waiver section.
Important: If you waive coverage by providing your health insurance information prior to the waiver deadline, the charge for Student Health Insurance will be refunded to your student account. 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.
