The waiver request form is for graduate students who are included in the mandatory group. International students must contact the insurance office at firstname.lastname@example.org to complete a waiver form. Any international student who completes the online waiver form will have their waiver denied.
GA/GTA/GRA students who fall under the mandatory coverage requirement may waive out of this policy only by providing evidence of coverage by a policy that is equal to or greater in coverage than the entirety of the AU policy. Fall Waivers are due no later than September 5th. Spring Waivers are due no later than February 16th. Waiver applications are accepted for two months following the waiver deadline, but are subject to prorated insurance costs. Example if you turn in your waiver in March for a spring waiver you are susceptible to paying for January and February’s insurance. Students who waive out of Fall semester will be waived out of Spring/Summer semester as well, unless otherwise indicated. Students who waive out of the GSGHP/ISSHP will NOT be eligible for the university subsidy. Students who waive out of the insurance, but wish to re-enroll may optionally do so at any time by contacting the insurance coordinator.
Please be aware that a new insurance waiver request form must be completed at the beginning of each new academic year. Waivers for insurance purchased through healthcare.gov must be of gold standard or higher in order to be accepted for processing.
