What if I am a returning student? Do I need to waive and/or enroll each semester?

Each year all students must go online and either waive out of or enroll in the insurance. That is especially true this year with a new insurance vendor.

We encourage you to complete your waiver by July 1st so that your tuition bill will not have the charge on it. The last day to waive the insurance is September 10th at which point you will be enrolled and you will not be able to waive again until the spring semester.

If you plan to be here in the spring semester you can ask that your waiver be applied to the spring semester. This will save you from having to redo your waiver for the spring.

Students wishing to enroll please do so by August 1st so that you will have your insurance card right away.
