Student Health Insurance Waiver

All Duquesne University full-time students must have adequate medical insurance coverage and provide the University with verifiable proof of coverage online.

If the insurance is not waived online, the student will be auto-enrolled in the University plan and their Duquesne student account will be charged.                 

NOTE: To avoid being charged in subsequent years, you will need to complete the steps below by August 31 each year the student is enrolled full-time.

How to Waive Student Health Insurance

  5. In the left-hand column, choose "Petition to Waive" under "Student Access"
  6. The student's @duq.edu email address is the Username, and the Banner ID is the Password. The Banner ID starts with the letter "D", for example D000001.
