Graduate & Professional Studies Student Health Insurance

Graduate & Professional Studies Health Insurance Information

When reviewing your bill, you may notice an additional health insurance charge. Graduate & Professional Studies students with six (6) credits or more in most of our on-campus graduate programs are automatically enrolled in the Jacksonville University student health insurance. However, if you have existing health insurance coverage that can be used in the Jacksonville area without gaps from 8/1/24 - 7/31/25, you may qualify to waive the insurance. 

Policy for Waiving the Insurance

In order to waive the Jacksonville University Student Health Insurance Plan, your private health insurance must provide comparable coverage in the state of Florida. If you have health insurance coverage that allows you to be seen by a doctor in the Jacksonville area and that will cover you without gaps from at least August 1, 2024, through July 31, 2025, you may qualify to waive the school’s insurance.

Waiver Procedure

All eligible students who have other comparable insurance coverage must file a waiver in order to waive participation in the Student Medical Insurance Plan. Your insurance company must be based in the United States. International policies are not accepted. Once you have submitted your waiver, and it has been approved, please allow 1 week for your charges to be removed. 

To waive the student health insurance you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Fill in all required fields on the form
  2. Upload images of the front and back of your insurance card
  3. Submit

Health Insurance Waiver 

If the waiver information has not been submitted online by the indicated deadline, the student will remain enrolled in the University's Student Medical Insurance Plan, and the charge for the Student Medical Insurance Plan cannot be removed.
