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.


 2018-2019 Waiver Information



Hard Waiver Student Eligibility

  • All full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours
  • Graduate students taking 6 or more credit hours
  • All international students regardless of credit hours

Are automatically enrolled in this insurance Plan at registration, and the premium for coverage is added to their tuition bill unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.


Hard Waiver Student Waiver Instructions

Waiver Deadlines:

ANNUAL Enrollment Deadline: 9/15/18 – Closed

SPRING/SUMMER Enrollment Deadline: 2/14/19 (for new incoming students)



For those students who do not submit an approved waiver form before the deadline, you will be automatically charged and officially enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Once enrolled there are no refunds or cancellations. (Please note, automatic enrollment will occur AFTER the waiver deadline.)


Open Enrollment Periods

If you are a student in the Fall semester and eligible to purchase coverage and you choose not to waive the coverage before the Annual Enrollment Deadline of *September 15, 2018, you will not be eligible to waive again until the start of the next Fall Semester unless you experience a “Qualifying Life Event” during the year.

*For new students in the Spring semester, your open enrollment/waiver deadline is February 14, 2019. 


Qualifying Life Event

Students who did not enroll themselves or their dependent(s) during the open enrollment period may be able to enroll in the policy if they experience a Qualifying Life Event.

Qualifying Life Events include:

  • Acquiring a new family member
  • Marriage/Civil Union
  • Divorce
  • Loss or change of Job
  • Expiration of Benefits


If you and/or your dependents meet the requirements for a Qualifying Life Event, you will need to provide the following:

  • Proof of qualifying life event/proof of involuntary loss of coverage
  • Enrollment Form
  • Payment


All documents and payment must be received within 30 days of the qualifying life event. After 30 days, the student or dependents will no longer be eligible to enroll in the plan, until fall of the following school year.

Please Contact Us for cost and enrollment information as a Qualifying Life Event.
