Charges may be waived online if the student is covered by a comparable policy. The annual coverage is for the period beginning September 1st through August 31st. The Spring coverage is for the period January 1st through August 31st. Health insurance is not charged during the summer sessions. Payment for student health insurance must be fully paid prior to enrollment in the coverage.
