Many colleges and universities require that all students be covered by an adequate insurance policy. UMFK requires that all students verify that they have other adequate insurance coverage in order to waive automatic enrollment in the UMFK sponsored student health insurance plan. Students wishing to supplement existing coverage may do so by remaining in the UMFK plan. Since insurance purchased outside of the U.S. 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 U.S. insurance is provided. All students enrolled in 9 credits or more will automatically be enrolled in the UMFK plan. Students who wish to have the expense for this coverage removed from the University charges may do so by providing other insurance information.

The deadline to waive the insurance is October 1st for the fall semester and February 15th for new students who begin in the spring.  No waivers will be accepted after the deadline.
