Insurance Requirement

The university requires that all full-time students have health insurance. Full-time students must either waive with proof of insurance or enroll and be responsible for the premium. The enrollment/waiver period is from June 1 to September 30 (December 1 to February 28 for Spring entry). Coverage extends from August 15 to the following August 14 and costs $1,502 for undergraduate students and $2,152 for graduate students. Please contact UnitedHealthCare for any questions about coverage at 1-800-505-4160 or for brochures at www.firststudent.com. Only full-time students are eligible to enroll. This insurance is through UnitedHealthCare and can be used outside of Kean University.
