Undergraduate students taking six or more credit hours (three or more credit hours during any summer session), or living in university housing are required to have health insurance while enrolled at Southern. You must fill out the student insurance information form at the beginning of each school year to request or waive health insurance coverage. If you do not submit this form, you will automatically be enrolled in and charged for the school’s health insurance policy. Coverage is available for spouses and dependents.
Graduate students are eligible to enroll in the insurance plan on a voluntary basis. International students are required to purchase the school’s health insurance policy, unless they show proof of a comparable travel plan. Students only enrolled in online classes are not eligible for coverage and will not be required to have medical coverage.
