Online Enrollment

Domestic Students

Domestic students taking nine (9) credit hours or more credit hours 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 on their my.SMU account.

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