Enroll/Cost

Am I Eligible to Enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan?

All domestic students taking nine (9) credit hours or more are required to maintain health insurance as a condition of enrollment. A domestic student may waive out of the policy by documenting current comparable U.S. insurance coverage.


Domestic students taking between four (4) to eight (8) credit hours are eligible to enroll on a voluntary basis during the open enrollment period (prior to the waiver deadline) and have their premium billed to their SMU student account.


All international students are required to maintain the Student Health Insurance Plan as a condition of enrollment. International students must enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan unless they have an approved special waiver.


Eligible dependents of those enrolled in the plan may participate in the plan on a voluntary basis.
