Online Petition Process

If there were extenuating circumstances that prevented you from meeting the waiver deadline, you can submit an Online Petition to Waive after the Deadline form. To access this form, please click the Log In link at the top right to create a user account or log in with your existing credentials. Once logged in, click on 'Petition to Waive' under 'Student Access' and select the Petition Form.

The Petition to Waive process acts as a second level appeal for all students who missed the published waiver deadline. Submission of a petition to waive does NOT guarantee approval.

Attention Students: The deadline to submit the Petition to Waive form is January 31, 2020.

The Student Health Insurance Plan provides health insurance coverage that complements the on-campus primary care services, covering off-campus services such as emergency room, hospitalizations, surgery, ambulance and specialty care. All students taking at least one on-campus course will be billed for the ACA-compliant Student Health Insurance Plan. Students must choose to either enroll or waive this coverage by the posted deadline. Students who do not actively enroll or waive by the posted deadline will be enrolled in the plan. The fee is non-refundable after the waiver deadline.
