Health Insurance

New Jersey statutes require all full-time students and all international students (whether full or part time) to show evidence of existing health insurance, or they will be required to purchase coverage from the university at the rate of $244 (U.S. students) or $282 (international students) per academic year.


You may waive the fee for this insurance if you have comparable coverage. This must be done during the 30-day enrollment period at the beginning of the semester.


You must be registered for at least three credits to be able to purchase insurance from the university. If you’re an international student with less than three credits, you must contact the Office of Health Services for further information. If you have a J-1 visa, see "Health Insurance" under "Student Services" in the catalog for further information.


If you're interested in purchasing supplemental coverage for your spouse or family, contact the Office of Health Services for more information.
