The success of every student is the focus of everything we do.
It’s almost that time!
IMPORTANT—Students and parents: The annual opt-out period for student health insurance is August 9–September 3. Each year, every student who does not wish to be charged the fee for Student Health Insurance must opt out of this service by filing information about their current health insurance coverage online at the designated site. Don’t forget! Opting out is only possible for those who have approved existing plans. Filing prevents you from being charged $682 for additional student health insurance. If you do not have health insurance, do nothing. The fee will be added to your account automatically. Read more about student health insurance.
