Insurance Medical Benefit Plan

Students who register for 12 credits or more will automatically be billed for medical insurance coverage. Any student who changes their status from full-time (12 credits or more) to part-time (less than 12 credits) by September 30, 2003 will not be billed for medical insurance coverage, and any fee collected will be refunded to the student. The plan is specifically designed for students and is offered at a reasonable premium. If you already have health/hospital insurance and do not wish this coverage, you must request a waiver of the insurance fee. A waiver form will be available at the time of registration. You must complete the form and provide your insurance carrier's name and address and your policy number. Upon receipt of the form, the fee will be waived and/or your payment refunded.

Part-time students (11 credits or less) may also purchase insurance. If you are interested, you may obtain the information brochure at the Bursar's Office (A-229) or the Health Services Office (B-101).
