Student Medical Insurance Information
It is the policy of the university that all full-time domestic students and all international students, both full and part time, have medical insurance coverage. Students will automatically be enrolled in the plan offered through the university unless they waive enrollment prior to the Oct. 1, 2009, deadline. 

Students may waive the CUA Student Medical Insurance Plan as long as they have comparable health insurance coverage that provides benefits equal to or better than the university plan.

Part-time domestic students are not required to waive.

To waive enrollment, students must go to www.srstudentcenter.com by the deadline date for each semester. Students should select "find my school" or search by policy number 2009-482-1 to access information for The Catholic University of America. There is no option to submit a paper version of the waiver.

Medical insurance information provided to Student Health Services, Department of Athletics or any other department is not shared and does not constitute a waiver of medical insurance. The student medical plan charge is not refundable or transferable.

Reminders are sent to student CUA e-mail accounts prior to the deadlines so that students can avoid being automatically enrolled. It is the student's responsibility to waive each academic year. Failure to submit an online waiver application will result in default enrollment. 

Waiver deadlines:
All students enrolling for the fall semester: Oct. 1, 2009
New students enrolling for the spring semester: Feb. 15, 2010
New students enrolling for the summer semester: May 31, 2010
