The University requires all students to have health insurance. All students will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored plan unless they waive coverage by providing proof of comparable coverage by the waiver deadline.
The University-sponsored plan, which is administered by United Healthcare, costs $1,090 for the 2016-2017 school year. Students starting coverage in Fall semester will be covered through the following Summer semester. Students entering in Spring or Summer will be charged a pro-rated fee for coverage unless they waive coverage by the waiver deadline.
For details about the current plan, including instructions and deadlines for submitting proof of existing coverage, please see UDC Student Health Insurance, which is maintained by University Health Services, or First Student's site for the University of the District of Columbia, which is maintained by the insurance provider.
