Health Insurance

Virginia Wesleyan University requires that all students attending VWU have personal health insurance.  VWU Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) cost for the 2021-2022 academic year is $2,286.  Each student will be automatically enrolled.  Your student account has already been charged for the student health insurance plan.  If you are currently enrolled under a coverage comparable to that of the University, you have the option to opt out of the University sponsored plan by completing the insurance waiver .  To access the online waiver, choose your school and click on Waive your School’s insurance.  If you are insured through Virginia Wesleyan University sponsored Student Health Insurance plan you should go online to insurance waiver to re-enroll in the plan. 

The waiver due date is August 31, 2021.  If your waiver is not received by August 31, 2021 you will automatically be enrolled and covered by the policy through July 2022 and are responsible for the insurance premium.  The insurance waiver and enrollment must be completed each year.

New students who are enrolled for 6 or more hours during the Spring Semester must maintain health insurance coverage and will be billed $1,518 for the semester. If you are covered by a comparable health insurance plan and wish to waive the SHIP, you MUST complete the insurance waiver by January 31, 2022.
