Student Health Insurance
NOTICE: YOU MUST WAIVE YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE EVERY SEMESTER.
Your student account will be automatically assessed a premium each semester. Those students who already have health care coverage through other sources may have this charge removed from their account by following the steps below (under Insurance Waiver Process). Please note that in order for your waiver to be approved, your existing coverage must meet the minimum waiver requirements. Please do not contact the Office of the Bursar - we CANNOT remove these charges as CORE Management is responsible for all waiver decisions.
