IMPORTANT: If you successfully completed a waiver for Fall semester 2013 you DO NOT need to submit a waiver for the semester beginning in January 2014. You will however, be required to complete a waiver during the Summer of 2014 if you plan on attending school for Fall semester.
ALL FULL-TIME DAY STUDENTS taking 12 or more credit hours are required to have personal health insurance. You may only be exempt from the school sponsored insurance plan by filling out the online waiver (above left) before the deadline of August 19, 2013 (for Fall semester) or by January 17, 2014 (for Spring semester).
If you wish to participate in the University sponsored student health insurance program through Aetna- DO NOT DO ANYTHING. All Methodist University students who have not completed the opt out process are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance program and payment for your insurance coverage will be added to your tuition bill.

Waivers will only be accepted until January 6, 2014. Any student who wishes to waive out of the program must do so prior to January 17, 2014 or you will automatically be enrolled in the plan. Please see WAIVER INFORMATION below for more important instructions.
