Mandatory Student Health Insurance

Duquesne University is concerned about the health and well-being of our students and understands the importance of acquiring adequate health insurance. Therefore, the University has a Hard Waiver Policy for student health insurance.

All full-time Undergraduate, Graduate, and International students are required to login to our student health insurance portal to either select medical insurance or provide verifiable proof of coverage.

All full-time students who do not login to our student health insurance portal to provide the required information will automatically be enrolled in the basic Student Health Insurance plan.

Total cost for the policy, effective August 1, 2016 to July 31, 2017, is $1,891.40. This is automatically billed as $970.70 in the fall and $920.70 in the spring.
