Summer session students who are not candidates for a degree will not automatically be enrolled in the NYU-sponsored Student Health insurance plan. Therefore, non-degree students do not have to waive coverage to avoid health insurance fees. Still, it is a good idea to check to make sure that you are not being charged for health insurance.
NYU Degree Candidate
NYU students in a degree-granting program (e.g., JD and LLM students) who register for at least six credits during the summer will be enrolled automatically in and charged for an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan unless:
a) The student was enrolled in an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan for Spring
b) The student waives insurance coverage before the summer deadline, typically June 5th.
Students who were enrolled in an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan for the Spring semester will continue to be covered for the summer at no additional charge.
Students who submitted a waiver during the current academic year do not have to file another waiver for the Summer term, but they will have to file a new waiver for the next academic year beginning in Fall.
Students have the option of waiving coverage or selecting enrollment in a different plan, by submitting a Student Health Insurance Selection/Waiver Form to the Student Health Insurance Services Office by the June 5th deadline. Students may only waive coverage or select enrollment in a different plan by submitting a selection/waiver form online by the deadline.
