Student Health Insurance
New Jersey Department of Health legislation requires students at public and private educational institutions to maintain health insurance, and further requires those institutions to offer coverage to the student population. Student Insurance is not provided by Student Health Services.
NOTE: All International Students (F-1 etc.) are required to have the University Group Medical Insurance.
Commencing August 15, 2012, Fairleigh Dickinson University offers an Injury and Sickness Insurance Plan underwritten by UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company. All full-time undergraduate students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours, all full-time graduate students enrolled in 9 or more credit hours and all international students, regardless of credit hours, are automatically enrolled on a hard waiver basis. Those students who wish to waive out of the Student Health Insurance must provide evidence of comparable coverage. Dependents (including Domestic Partners) of insured students are eligible to enroll on a voluntary basis.
