All full-time matriculated students and certification students enrolled in 12 or more credits for undergraduate or nine (9) or more credits for graduate students are automatically charged for Rowan University insurance coverage for the entire academic year.  If you already have health coverage, please refer to Waiver Criteria and Instructions, which is also provided as a menu item to the left.

All full-time and part-time matriculated Rowan University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences students are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.

All full-time Rowan SOM students, all full-time Postdoctoral Fellow Students and part-time Rowan SOM students who participate in clinical experience as part of their educational programs are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.

All full-time medical students and any student enrolled in a CMSRU approved alternate program of study are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.

The new federal healthcare laws require parents' health care policies to provide coverage for dependents up to age 26, so we encourage our students to investigate that possibility as an alternative to the student health insurance. Students should also explore their eligibility for public health benefits before deciding whether or not to waive out of the student insurance program.
