Health Insurance

All veterinary students are required to carry health insurance and may choose between the university group plan or private insurance that meets the university's requirements. If you choose to participate in a private insurance plan, you are required to provide documentation of that insurance coverage.

Please note:  Open enrollment will run from July 14th to September 11th. The waiver form will be open beginning July 1st .   For more information, please visit the Student Medical Insurance Website.
