Annual Health Insurance Requirement and Waiver/Request Deadlines

Health Insurance Requirement for fall and spring semesters—For information about SAIC's health insurance requirements and eligibility to submit a waiver, please refer to Health Services. All students who are required to have health insurance at SAIC are charged automatically each fall and spring semester they are enrolled.

For the 2014–15 academic year, the cost of health insurance for full-time domestic and all international students is $1,030 per semester during the fall and spring semesters. The rate for the 2015–16 academic year is not yet available.

Waiver Instructions—If students do not wish to have coverage under SAIC’s student health insurance plan and have coverage under their own comparable health insurance policy, they must request a waiver of the coverage online in SAIC Self-Service. This can be done in the fall for the entire academic year or for each fall and/or spring semester.  Requests to waive fall and spring health insurance must be submitted annually and can only be done online in SAIC Self-Service. Mailed or hard-copy documentation is not acceptable. 

Request Instructions—Part-time degree students who have not automatically been charged for SAIC student health insurance are eligible to enroll in the plan by completing Section B of the online form in SAIC Self-Service.
