Full-time students (Undergraduates 12 hours / Graduates 9 hours / Doctorates 6 hours, or more, during each of the fall or spring semesters) are enrolled by the university in a State of Illinois mandated health insurance plan. Students will be billed every semester for the cost of the plan. Students who can provide evidence of equal or better coverage than offered in the plan have the option of waiving this requirement by the cancellation deadline announced prior to the beginning of each semester.
The cost of the plan for the 2013-2014 school year is estimated to be $537.50 per semester (the actual amount will be published on this web page when it becomes available). The cancellation deadline for the 2013 fall semester has yet to be announced.
The cost of the plan for the 2012-2013 school year is $520 per semester. The cancellation deadline for the fall 2012 semester was August 24, 2012. The cancellation deadline for the spring 2012 semester was January 21, 2013 (extended to February 18, 2013 for Special Session students).
NO EXCEPTIONS can be made to published deadlines!
