Student Health Insurance

All full-time undergraduate students are required to have health insurance and are automatically billed for the cost of the University-sponsored student health insurance plan. The cost of this plan is $1,525 for the 2020-2021 academic year, and the charge appears on the fall semester tuition bill. You may review the plan benefits offered and administered by UnitedHealthcare at www.uhcsr.com/newhaven. The 2020-2021 health insurance policy runs from August 1, 2020 through July 31, 2021.

If you are a domestic full-time undergraduate student with existing health insurance coverage and wish to waive the coverage offered by the University, you must submit an online waiver through the following website: www.studentcenter.uhcsr.com/newhaven.

The University student health insurance plan is mandatory for all full-time (undergraduate and graduate) international students and coverage cannot be waived. Further information regarding this policy can be found below.

All waivers must be received and processed no later than Friday, July 31. If a waiver is not received by July 31, the student will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored health insurance plan and will be responsible for paying the $1,525 plan premium directly to the University.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • An online waiver will need to be processed each academic year should you wish to waive coverage.
  • The only way to waive the University-sponsored health insurance is online.
  • Once the waiver deadline has passed, you will not be able to waive coverage until the next academic year.
