Student Health Insurance Waiver and Enrollment for Spring 2014 begins on Thursday, November 14, 2013, and ends on Friday, February 14, 2014. Students will be notified further with instructions
Pratt Institute requires all registered full-time and part-time students to carry health insurance. Student health insurance is offered by Pratt Institute, and all registered students are automatically charged a student health insurance fee, once they are registered for a class. Students who are currently insured under family or private medical insurance may waive (opt out of) the student health insurance plan, thus removing the student health insurance fee from their account. If you do not want to be enrolled in the student health insurance plan because you are already insured, you MUST complete the waiver process to opt out of the student health insurance plan by the February 14 deadline. Registered students who are in need of health insurance may enroll in the student health insurance plan. Please follow the instructions below to either opt out of or enroll in the student health insurance plan.
All Students: If you are covered under private health insurance, do not want to enroll in the student health insurance plan, and wish to have the student health insurance fee removed from your account, you MUST complete an online waiver every semester that you are attending (Fall, Spring).
Returning Students: Your waiver for Fall 2013 is NOT valid for Spring 2014. You must complete a new waiver for Spring 2014.
