Student Health Insurance

Seattle University requires that all undergraduate students have health insurance. Seattle University has teamed up with JCB Insurance Solutions to offer a Student Health Insurance Program through Aetna Student Health.  The full premium cost for the academic year can be found on the Costs page. Undergraduate students at Seattle University are required to have health insurance but may waive the student health insurance plan if they have health insurance with comparable coverage in the state of Washington. If not waived, the student will be automatically enrolled in the Aetna Student Health plan.

The health insurance fee is billed quarterly and each quarter has it's own waiver period. A waiver request must be submitted for each year the student has health insurance that meets the university's minimum criteria. Students who have waived the university's insurance may subsequently purchase the insurance at any time; however, coverage is not retroactive.  Students who waive in the fall will be automatically waived in the winter, and spring/summer terms for that academic year.
