new2019-2020 Preliminary Information Regarding Student Health Insurance, Vision insurance and Dental Insurance

Special Information about Summer-only 2019 Enrollment and Waiver Period

The enrollment and waiver period for summer-only 2019 is April 17, 2019 – June 14, 2019.

Enrollment and waiver information for the 2019-2020 academic year (coverage from August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2020) will be announced at a later date.


Who must enroll or waive Summer-only coverage?

  • The only students that can enroll or waive during the Summer–only enrollment and waiver period are students who are newly-mandated during the summer 2019 semester. Newly-mandated students are:
    • International students with a J or F visa status enrolling during summer 2019 semester(s) who were not enrolled in credit hours during spring 2019 semester
    • Graduate students newly awarded a graduate assistantship tuition waiver for summer 2019 semester.


Students who were enrolled or had an approved waiver during the spring/summer 2019 coverage period do not need to enroll or submit a waiver request again during the summer-only period.  Enrollments, including dependent enrollments, and approved waivers for spring/summer 2019 cover the period of January 1 – July 31, 2019. 


Students who did not submit a waiver request during the spring/summer 2019 waiver period and thus were automatically enrolled in the plan for spring/summer 2019 coverage cannot waive any coverage until the fall 2019 waiver period.  Spring/summer 2019 coverage is effective January 1 – July 31, 2019.  The coverage cannot be prorated and ended early. 

Premiums and methods of payment depend upon your student status. Please note: there is no partial-semester coverage. E.g., if you enroll for spring/summer coverage and finish your studies in March, you are covered through July 31 and are responsible for payment of premiums for the entire spring/summer coverage period.
