Insurance Requirement

All full-time undergraduate students (taking three or more classes) and all full-time graduate students (those in a degree-seeking program and taking two or more courses per semester) attending Bucknell must enroll in or waive the health insurance coverage offered through the University each year. Students who waive coverage of the sponsored plan must provide verifiable proof of comparable coverage. Students are required to complete the waiver or enrollment each year.

If you do not complete the online waiver form prior to Aug. 1, your University account will be charged $3,160 for the price of the policy premium, and refunds will not be available after Sept. 1. Parents or guardians may waive or enroll on their student's behalf.

Questions about the plan or the enrollment or waiver process may be directed to Paige Fritze at bucknell@rcmd.com or 800-346-4075, ext. 1607.
