Students enrolled 3/4 time or more (9 semester credits/4.5 term credits) are required to have health insurance coverage year-round. You are automatically enrolled in BYU's Student Health Plan one week before classes start if private insurance has not been reported. Private insurance plans from companies outside the United States will not be accepted. However, if you have your own ACA compliant health insurance from a United States-based insurance company you will need to waive the health plan online to avoid paying for the BYU Student Health Plan.
New students coming for the fall semester can waive the BYU student health plan at the beginning of August. Those coming for winter, spring or summer semester will have access to waive the plan approximately 1 month prior to classes starting. The deadline to waive the BYU Student Health Plan is the semester add/drop deadline.
Tip: you will need to re-waive the Student Health Plan every fall semester by the add/drop deadline to avoid being charged.
