Choose Health Insurance

Health insurance is required. JWU will provide you with health insurance. All registered students are eligible and enrolled in the JWU plan on a hard waiver basis and responsible for the cost. University policy requires students to have health insurance, through another means (i.e., parent's health insurance or an employer program), the student does not have to utilize the university student health insurance plan and may opt out of/waive it. All current insurance must be accepted and fully comprehensive for all of the student's needs in the U.S. and the state in which the student attends class. Students can opt out of/waive the university plan by submitting the online waiver form to demonstrate evidence of coverage. A new waiver form must be submitted each academic year. Students who are required to have health insurance and do not waive the JWU plan will be charged for it. The online waiver form and details of the plan, including the full brochure and benefit flyer, can be found on the University Health Plans website.



JWU will not cover health insurance for your dependents, so make sure they have health insurance.


Other Health Insurance

If you prefer to have your own insurance, opt out and ensure your health insurance is covered in the US.
