All full-time domestic students are charged fees for the student insurance plan. This plan includes insurance coverage for Dental, Vision and Health (Prescription Drugs), as well as AD&D (Accident).

All students are automatically enrolled in the Balanced Plan. If you wish to select an alternate plan as outlined in the brochure and the web page, you must do so before the end of the first month of your coverage. The only additional charge for an alternate plan is for Family Opt-ins.

The plan coverage period starts the first month of your academic year and ends August 31st. Eg. Fall start students coverage period is Sept 1st – Aug 31st, Winter start Jan 1 – Aug 31st, Spring start May 1st – Aug 31st.
