Medical insurance fees

Change in student health insurance: The Affordable Care Act has changed SPU’s ability to offer health insurance to our students. Unfortunately, this means there will not be a health insurance plan offered to domestic (American) undergraduates or graduate students for the 2018 -19 academic year.

In accordance with the national health care reform, Washington state has launched the Washington Health Benefit Exchange to assist people in obtaining affordable individual health insurance. These will be individual plans, not plans offered by SPU.

All students studying at SPU on a visa are required to enroll in the University student medical insurance plan year-round (including vacation periods). Exceptions to this policy require documentation of a comparable health care plan. Undocumented students may contact the International Student Services office for medical insurance information and guidance. 

Waivers may be obtained only at Health Services and must be completed by the fifth day of the quarter. 

Student who have not received a waiver will automatically be charged the health insurance premium fee. Though health insurance for students' dependents is not required, it is strongly recommended and can be purchased directly through the SPU insurance vendor.
