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 undergraduate students and OTA online Students enrolled in 8 or more credits and all international students be covered by health insurance. Every undergraduate student and OTA online student enrolled in 8+ credits and international student is automatically enrolled in the University's student insurance plan. Students who are already covered by a health insurance plan that meets the criteria, can waive out of the University provided plan during the student's initial waiver period. Any student that does not waive out of the University student health insurance plan prior to the established waiver deadline will remain enrolled and be financially responsible for the premium that will be posted to the student's account upon waiver closure.
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. Health insurance coverage is not offered through the University for graduate students. Students who do not have health insurance coverage and need assistance with finding a plan should contact the University's insurance specialist, listed below.
