Health Insurance Requirement

Exchange students are subject to the "hard waiver" requirement for international students. The hard waiver is a verification process that enables the University to verify that your insurance meets the University's standards of coverage. If your insurance does not meet these standards you will be automatically enrolled in the University's insurance program through Aetna. For more information about the hard waiver requirements and process as well as details about the Aetna insurance program please visit the Elson Student Health Center website.

The University also requires that you complete a pre-entrance health form.  The form should be submitted directly to the Elson Student Health Center.
