Mandatory Health Insurance Coverage—SAIC Health Insurance coverage is mandatory for all full-time domestic undergraduate, graduate, exchange, and certificate students and all international students and is charged automatically to the student's tuition and fees account each fall and spring semester.
Waiving SAIC's Health Insurance—If, however, students have comparable health insurance coverage with another provider, they may submit a request to waive SAIC's Health Insurance annually (online only) no later than the first day of classes. Health Insurance waiver requests are reviewed for approval. Students living in the Residence Hall must also provide proof of insurance to the Residence Life Office under separate cover.
For more information about the health insurance requirement and eligibility to be approved for a waiver, please refer to the Health Services section of the website.
