Things to Remember:

  • Students who do not submit an online waiver for verification of outside health insurance, or students that do not enroll themselves in the Student Blue Insurance Plan by the deadline, will automatically be enrolled and the insurance premium WILL remain on your student account.
  • To prevent delays in coverage for those students that wish to participate in the Student Blue plan, please enroll as soon as you decide to accept the University's coverage
  • Students must complete this process each Semester!
