Upper Iowa University is vitally interested in making your academic and personal experience meaningful and successful. Your health and wellness are key components of that experience.
The University and the students have a mutual investment that should be protected. To ensure that students get the care they need to stay in class and avoid the potential hardship of medical expenses, we require all full-time and/or resident students to have adequate health and accident coverage. Students have the option of maintaining primary coverage under a family employee plan or private insurer, or must enroll in the school-sponsored student insurance plan, underwritten by Columbian Life Insurance Company and administered by Student Assurance Services, Inc.
All full-time traditional, undergraduate students will be enrolled in the school-sponsored Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. The cost of the plan is only $1,061 annually. The charge has been posted to your student account and is payable with your tuition bill, unless you wish to waive the annual cost by demonstrating proof of comparable coverage by September 1st. You must go on-line to waive coverage.
The full plan brochure and waiver form are available on-line (click on School Look-up, select the state, then search for Upper Iowa University from the dropdown.)
All students must designate their intent to either enroll in the school sponsored student insurance plan or waive coverage by September 1st.
