Purpose:  Ensure the health care needs of students and help protect against the potentially high costs of illness or injury.


In order to provide for the health care needs of its students and help protect against the potentially high costs of illness or injury, St. Catherine University requires that all degree-seeking students enrolled in the St. Paul Day Baccalaureate and Minneapolis Associate students be covered by health insurance. Every student is automatically enrolled in the University's student insurance plan, and the premium is automatically posted to the student’s account.  Students who are already covered by a health insurance plan can waive out of the University-provided plan during a set period at the beginning of each student's academic year.

Information describing the plan, the automatic billing and enrollment process, and step-by-step waiver directions can be found on the University’s Health Insurance website.

For Graduate and bachelor's degree-seeking students in the College for Adults, health insurance coverage is not offered through the University. If you do not have health insurance coverage and need assistance with finding a plan, please contact our insurance specialist, listed below.
