Student Health Insurance Requirements


Student Health Insurance Requirements

Prepare for campus by reviewing student health insurance requirements.

All full-time undergraduate, residential, international, physician assistant and pharmacy students are required to maintain health insurance coverage while attending USJ.

A health insurance fee will be applied to the accounts of all students in the required categories in the fall and spring semesters of each academic year.

To receive a credit for this fee, students covered by another plan must perform an annual waiver procedure. International students are not permitted to waive enrollment unless the student is enrolled in a U.S. group plan arranged by the student's sponsoring entity.

Not all plans qualify for a waiver. If a student does not have existing coverage or is not eligible for waiver, then the student will be enrolled in the University affiliated plan with Gallagher Student Health.

The waiver can be easily accessed on MyUSJ from the "Quick Links" menu.

Graduate student and part-time undergraduates (registered for fewer than 12 credits) are not subject to the University insurance requirements unless specifically required by the student's academic program or the student is an international or residential student.
