West Virginia University and West Virginia University Institute of Technology students enrolled in six or more credit hours are required to carry adequate health insurance*. This requirement also applies to international students enrolled in one or more credit hours.
All eligible students will be automatically enrolled in the WVU-sponsored Aetna student health insurance plan and assessed the student insurance fee of $1,000 per semester. However, students who have personal health insurance coverage or are covered as a dependent under a parent’s or spouse’s plan may opt out of the WVU plan by completing the student health insurance waiver.
