Why am I being charged for student health insurance? Can I waive it?

Student Health Insurance

Information on this topic along with instructions on how to waive the insurance fee can be found in the following link:

State law requires all full-time students to have health insurance coverage. As such, you will automatically be charged for this insurance. You may waive it online at if you already have other valid health insurance coverage. Waivers must be submitted before the 100% drop date in order to have the charge backed off of your account. Insurance charges are only assessed each Fall semester, unless you are a new student beginning in the Spring semester. For more information, contact the Business Office at 210-829-6043 or
