WesternU Student Health Insurance Requirements
Maintaining comprehensive health insurance coverage is mandatory for all full-time WesternU students. All students MUST be covered by an ACA compliant domestic health insurance plan for the entire academic year, including summer and holidays. All full-time WesternU students must enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan unless an acceptable Waiver is provided by the designated deadline.
Part-time WesternU students, those enrolled in programs where the entire curriculum is delivered online, and students only enrolled in thesis/dissertation continuous registration courses are exempt from the University’s comprehensive health insurance requirement. However, all WesternU students may enroll in the student health insurance plan, regardless of their exemption status.
Please note, students in programs currently being delivered through distance education as a direct result of COVID-19 do not qualify for the student health insurance exemption.
