All international students studying inside the U.S. are required to have health insurance coverage. Seattle University’s health insurance provider is Aetna, and brokered through JCB Insurance Solutions. While studying at Seattle University, you will automatically be enrolled in this coverage unless you inform us that you are studying from outside the U.S. in a particular term, or are inside the U.S. with your own (comparable) health insurance coverage. 
Coverage for each academic year begins on September 1st, and goes through August 31st of the following year. For students beginning in a term other than Fall, health insurance coverage begins at the beginning of the start quarter and continues through August 31st of that year. Insurance premiums are billed quarterly, with Spring/Summer quarters being billed together as one term.
*Note for LAW: Law student coverage dates are August 1, 2022 – July 31, 2023
If you will be studying at Seattle U from OUTSIDE the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic and want to waive insurance charges, please contact ISC at 
For students studying INSIDE THE U.S. ONLY:
To be eligible to waive out the student health plan you must have comparable coverage in the state of Washington including access to primary care, preventative care, and prescriptions.  Please note the policy MUST be based in the United States to qualify and the plan should be compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and filed and approved in the U.S.

The term premiums are billed to your student account by quarter with spring/summer combined into one term. If you have an approved waiver the premium will be removed from your account and not added on subsequent terms during 2022-2023 academic year. Since the insurance premium is now paid by term, the policy ends when your term ends unless enrolled in the subsequent term. See above for the dates of coverage (term dates). If you apply for post-completion OPT, you can continue to keep coverage on a term-by-term basis by enrolling directly through JCB’s website.
