Health Insurance Requirement

Beginning Fall Semester for 2022–23 and thereafter, Wright State University will require the following students be covered by adequate health insurance:

  • All domestic undergraduate students registered for 12 or more credit hours per term
  • All domestic graduate students registered for 6 or more credit hours per term
  • All international students registered for 1 or more credit hour(s) per term

If any of the above three descriptions apply to you:

Wright State will automatically enroll you in the university-sponsored student medical and prescription drug insurance plan for an August 15, 2022, effective date. 

  • If you want the coverage, no further action will be necessary. 
  • If you currently have medical and prescription drug coverage under another plan, you may submit a waiver request to have the premium removed from your student account. Your waiver must be submitted between July 1 and September 2, 2022. Your waiver will remain on file until the end of the 2022–23 school year. Note: The online waiver will be available July 1.

If you do not belong to one of the three groups listed above:

Undergraduate degree-seeking students taking a minimum of 6 credit hours may voluntarily enroll in the student health insurance plan. If you choose to do so, you must sign up for the plan by September 2, 2022.
