Summer Term Health Insurance Waiver

SUMMER TERM:  If you completed an approved or denied waiver in Fall 2015, Winter or Spring 2016, you do NOT need to do a waiver for Summer 2016. 

Tips:  Domestic students, if you register for 5 or more credits BEFORE the 7/3/16 Summer waiver deadline, you will need to make sure you do the waiver on time if you have comparable outside health insurance coverage. 

If you register for 5 or more credits AFTER the 7/3/16 Summer waiver deadline, you will not be charged for insurance nor do you need to do a waiver.

If you WANT the Student Insurance for Summer term, you must register for 5 or more credits PRIOR to the 7/3/16 Summer waiver deadline.  No late exceptions can be made.

If you register for 5 or more credits and then drop below 5 credits prior to the 7/3/16 Summer waiver deadline, the insurance charge of $590 will automatically be removed by 7/6/16.
