All FAMU students are required to have health insurance per University Regulation 2.033. This regulation applies to students that are enrolled at least half-time (9 hours undergraduate or 6 hours graduate) in a degree-seeking program. Students that are strictly online, transient, non-degree seeking, dual enrolled high school students, certificate students and less than part-time are exempt from this requirement.
Students are required to provide proof of insurance coverage via an online waiver portal or purchase the university-sponsored student health insurance plan. Students that fail to provide documentation of insurance coverage and students whose opt-out waivers are denied will be enrolled in the university sponsored plan. Charges for the plan will be placed on the student account and the student will be responsible for payment.
