All students are required to obtain health insurance prior to matriculation and to maintain health insurance throughout their time of enrollment at the University. Students must participate in the University-sponsored health insurance program or submit an approved waiver with documentation of alternative equivalent coverage. If a student’s insurance is scheduled to expire during the academic year, they must obtain a new waiver form with proof of new insurance at least 30 days prior to the expiration of their old insurance. The current cost of the Student Health Insurance program may be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Services. Any student who has a lapse of health insurance coverage will be summarily removed from classes and/or clerkships and may be subject to dismissal.
