Online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process for 2014-2015
The online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process is now open. Every year, all full-time students must complete the online insurance process during Fall Open Enrollment. Students can enroll in the University-sponsored Aetna Student Health insurance plan, or they can waive the plan if their own insurance meets University criteria. Students must complete this online insurance process every year even if their insurance plan has not changed. Students who were enrolled in the Aetna Student Health insurance plan for the 2013-14 year are covered by the plan through July 31, 2014. Coverage for 2014-15 begins on August 1, 2014. For more information about the health insurance requirement, check "Health Insurance for Full-Time Students."
