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/or hospitals? Would it require that the student return home for care?).
A voluntary accident and sickness health insurance policy is offered through United Health Care (American College Student Association). The University recommends enrollment for students not covered by another policy. Insurance can be purchased for 3, 6 or 12 months. All details, including enrollment and payment is handled by United Health Care.
