Funds are available to assist a limited number of financial aid students each year who do not have coverage at home. To apply for these resources, students should complete their financial aid application by the deadline, and submit the online insurance enroll/waive form by August 1, 2022, indicating that they do not have adequate or comparable insurance coverage. Student Financial Services (SFS) will review eligibility after the enroll/waive deadline and the insurance assistance or subsidy will be applied to students’ accounts soon thereafter. Over 230 students received this assistance during the 2020-21 school year. Students who receive the subsidy during 2020-21, will receive the subsidy in subsequent years as long as they submit their financial aid application timely and complete the insurance enroll/waiver form by August 1 indicating they do not have comparable insurance coverage elsewhere.
