Step 14: Confirm Health Insurance

As a condition of enrollment, the University of San Francisco requires students to have a health insurance plan, both to protect against unexpected high medical costs and to provide access to quality care.

Option 1: Enroll in the USF-endorsed plan (automatic)

All undergraduate domestic students registering for nine (9) credit hours or more (EXCEPT Certificate programs and online programs students) will be automatically charged for the USF health insurance plan. You may read more about the Plan and its benefits on the USF Health Promotion Services Health Insurance web page.

Option 2: Waive USF plan by February 1

Students who have a U.S.-based health insurance plan with coverage comparable (equal or better) to the USF-endorsed plan can waive the student health insurance plan and keep their current insurance plan. For more specific waiver requirements, visit the Waiver Criteria page.

You can opt-out of the USF-endorsed plan online by visiting the Health Insurance Policy page after December 1. We will post an updated link and instructions on how to opt-out of the USF-sponsored plan. The waiver period begins December 1 and ends February 1. 

Deadline: February 1. You may opt-out of the USF-endorsed plan (waive the requirement) between December 1 and February 1. If you do not waive the insurance requirement by February 1, you will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the USF-endorsed plan.
