University of Maine at Fort Kent requires all full time students enrolled in 9 or more credits to have health insurance coverage.
Since insurance purchased outside of the USA is not likely to be effective in this country, all international students are also required to remain enrolled in the UMFK plan unless proof of other USA or appropriate Canadian insurance coverage is provided.
Canadian students who are student teaching in Canada this fall will NOT be automatically enrolled in the UMFK plan. Those students need to request the plan if they want it.
All other students who are enrolled in 9 or more credits will automatically be enrolled in the UMFK Plan.
The waiver will be in effect until the fall semester of the next academic year only, at which time the waiver process must be initiated again.
WAIVER DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 1ST FOR THE FALL SEMESTER AND FEBRUARY 15TH FOR THE SPRING SEMESTER. Waivers will not be accepted after these dates.
Students who wish to have the expense for this coverage removed from the University charges may do so by providing other insurance information. This can be done by any one of the filling out a Waiver Request online.
If you have any questions regarding student health insurance requirements, please contact the Business Office at (207) 834-8650 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
