Student Health Insurance

In this Section

Student Health Insurance coverage is mandatory at Clarkson University for non-distance program students. Students must either have adequate health insurance through their parent/guardian, their own coverage, or enroll in Clarkson University’s provided coverage through United Health Care.

Students that have coverage through their parent/guardian or their own coverage will need to provide proof of coverage by completing the appropriate form through their Student Service Center in PeopleSoft.  The information entered in the form will be verified by the health insurance administrator (Haylor, Freyer & Coon, Inc.).  Coverages will need to meet minimum standards as determined by the health insurance administrator in conjunction with the Director of Risk Management; if your coverage is deemed not to have met the minimum standards, then you will need to adjust your coverage to meet the minimum standards or become enrolled in Clarkson University’s provided coverage through United Health Care.  Furthermore, coverages for the 17-18 academic year must be active on or prior to 8/1/17.

The Summer 2017 student health insurance rate is $532.04 for the period of 5/1/17 – 7/31/17.

The 2017-2018 student health insurance rate for Undergraduate students is $1,854.00 for the period of 8/1/17 – 7/31/18. 

The 2017-2018 student health insurance rate for Graduate students is $2,514.00 for the period of 8/1/17 – 7/31/18.

2017-2018 Instructions:
