Full-Time Students

The University requires that all full time students carry medical insurance equal to or greater than the University’s sponsored plan while attending Tulane University. Each year, full time students must either enroll in the University sponsored Student Health Insurance plan, or waive enrollment in this plan by providing proof of other adequate coverage. This enrollment/waiver requirement must be met each year during the Fall semester or in the Spring for students enrolling as full time for the first time in January.

Failure to complete the on-line waiver form will result in the full time student's automatic enrollment in the Student Health Insurance Plan and the premium charged to the student's Accounts Receivable. Charges for premiums cannot be removed after September 19, 2014 for the fall open enrollment period and February 1, 2015 for the spring open enrollment period. Part-time, dissertation, research, executive program students and previously enrolled dependents are not automatically enrolled.

International students are no longer allowed to waive the student health insurance plan using the online system.  Refer to the OISS website for health insurance requirements and a petition to waive the student health insurance.
