All students must show evidence of medical insurance. Students are permitted to use local doctors, clinics, and hospitals at their own expense, with payments usually required at the time of treatment. Consequently, we strongly encourage students to secure health insurance (under their parents’ policy, a work policy, or privately).
Students should also be aware of the benefits and limitations of their coverage. Be sure to bring pertinent policy paperwork with you (e.g. name and phone number of the company, group number, policy number, and social security number).
Likewise, personal belongings in the student’s location of residence are not covered by university insurance. We encourage students to purchase a policy to cover these items.
