Wellness Center: Health Requirements for New Students
All incoming students are required to complete the Admission Health Record Packet [PDF].
Health Insurance Coverage
SAIC health insurance coverage is required for all domestic undergraduate, graduate, exchange and certificate students enrolled full-time and all international students. This requirement may be waived by those students who have their own health insurance coverage, provided that such coverage meets SAIC's minimum standards.
If a student has comparable coverage and wishes to have SAIC's insurance waived, a waiver must be submitted by the first day of classes for the fall and spring semesters. Students may submit a waiver by logging into SAIC Self-Service in the SAIC Portal. Please contact Student Financial Services at 312.629.6600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding the process of waiving or requesting insurance.
For questions regarding waiving your health insurance contact the Student Financial Services office at 312.629.6600 or email@example.com.
For questions regarding health insurance contact the SAIC Health Services Office at 312.499.4288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
