2022-23 Student Health Insurance Waiver is now available

WVU requires all domestic students registered for six or more credits and all international students to have health insurance – either on an existing plan or through the WVU Aetna Student Insurance Plan. Eligible students will be automatically enrolled in the WVU-sponsored Aetna student health insurance plan at a cost of $1217 per semester, assessed to their student account. Students already covered under another health insurance plan meeting the waiver criteria (e.g., as a dependent under a parent or spouse’s plan or their own plan), may opt out of the WVU Aetna plan by completing the insurance waiver each academic year. The waiver must be completed by August 1.
