The purpose of this policy is to set forth responsibility for the management and administration of student health insurance.
The Office of the Bursar is responsible for managing the student health insurance.
This policy is applicable to all matriculated students of Rowan University who are registered full time.
- Full-Time Students: All Full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours and all full-time graduate students taking 9 or more credit hours are required to have comprehensive health insurance with coverage in South Jersey.
- Health Insurance Billing: The student health insurance premium is added to students Rowan term bill once the student is registered full-time, which is defined for billing purposes as 12 credits for undergraduate and 9 credits for graduate.
- Waiving the Student Health Insurance: In order to opt out of the Rowan University Student Health Insurance Plan (RUSHIP), the student must have and agree to maintain their health insurance coverage throughout the academic year. Additionally, the insurance plan must provide in-patient and out-patient coverage in the Southern New Jersey Region. Failure to waive online before the deadline will result in automatic enrollment in RUSHIP, which will result in the assessment of a non-refundable student health insurance charge. Students will be fully responsible for the premium after this date regardless of any present or future coverage.
