Health Insurance Requirement and Waiver

As a default, full-time undergraduate students (12 credits or more) are automatically enrolled in the Seattle University contracted Student Health Insurance Plan through Wells Fargo Insurance Services. This plan renews automatically and is billed annually to the student's account in the first full-time quarter of the year. The Fall 2017 premium is $1,837.76. If you would like to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan than no further action is needed, you will be enrolled by default.

If you have your own health insurance plan with comparable coverage, you may submit a waiver removing the health insurance premium from your account by:

  1. Submitting a Waiver Form online by the last day to add/drop courses in the student’s first full time quarter; and
  2. Waivers must be submitted for the first full-time quarter EACH academic year. For returning students this is Fall quarter every year until graduation.

For Fall quarter 2017, students will be automatically billed their insurance premium if a waiver is not submitted by August 1, 2017. The premium will be reversed if you complete the Waiver by the deadline, September 26, 2017. Please see the Student Handbook (pg. 37) for a full description of the mandatory health insurance requirement (also known as a “tight waiver").

Waivers must be submitted online (no paper, mail-in, fax-in or call-in waivers are allowed) at the web address provided above by the last day to add/drop courses in the student's first full time quarter.  NO late waivers or exceptions will be accepted after the due date.
