Health Insurance Plan: Waiver/Enrollment

NJIT requires that all full-time, undergraduate students carrying 12 or more credit hours, graduate students carrying a minimum of 9 credit hours, and F1 and J1 international students carrying 3 or more credit hours have current health insurance.

These students are automatically enrolled in the school-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.

The online hard-waiver process will open July 21, 2014  for the Fall 2014 semester.  Students attending the 2014-2015 Fall and Spring semester will only have to waive now for the year. The site closes Sept 16, 2014.

Hard waiver site is located at this link (you will be directed to log on to the "My NJIT" site) "Hard Waiver" .

Full-time students who do not show proof of adequate health insurance will be automatically enrolled in the  NJIT Student Health Insurance Plan and the premium will be added to the student’s bill.

Part-time students (Graduate and Undergraduate), spouses and students who have lost their insurance may voluntarily enroll in a NJIT Student Health Insurance Plan. The enrollment period starts July 21, 2014 and ends October 3, 2014.
