All students are required by the University to have health insurance, either under a parent's plan or purchased independently. The requirement assures that resources are available to cover inpatient or specialty care or expenses related to accidents or injuries. Undergraduates, check with your parents - you may already be covered under their health plan or have a separate plan for yourself. All new students must submit a copy of their health insurance card as proof of insurance along with the Pre-Entrance Health Record. For information regarding insurance claims click here.
