Student Health Insurance
Students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance coverage. The University recommends that the student’s insurance plan be carefully evaluated to determine whether it can be used in the local area (i.e. – is it a PPO or HMO plan that will not cover local physicians and hospital? Would it require that the student return home for care?).
A voluntary accident and sickness health insurance policy is available (through the American College Student Association). The insurance plan is offered through United Health Care. The University recommends enrollment for students not covered by another policy. Insurance can be purchased for 3, 6 or 12 months. All enrollment and payment is directly through United Health Care.
