All full-time undergraduate students are required to carry medical insurance and are automatically enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance plan. Enrollment in this University sponsored health insurance is not required to use the University Health Center.
Students with comparable existing health insurance coverage may opt to waive the health insurance. For students entering in the fall semester, the waiver form is available in mid-July.
