All full-time undergraduate students are required to be covered by health insurance. The University offers a medical insurance plan for those students who are not otherwise covered.  Students who already have coverage are required to provide proof of insurance by completing an online waiver.  Those who do not comply will be automatically enrolled in a health insurance plan at their own expense. For more information, visit our Health Insurance Waiver/Enrollment webpage.

In the event of any financial default, the University shall have the right to employ a collection agency and/or any other legal means to collect sums due. Students will be required to pay all collection fees, including legal fees and interest.

Diplomas and official transcripts will not be released until a student has made satisfactory settlement of his or her student account and, if applicable, unless his or her federal Perkins loan account is in good standing.
