Syracuse University New Student Health Insurance Plan and Policy Introduced

In accordance with the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), Syracuse University will be offering a new student health insurance plan as of Aug. 1.

The plan offering coincides with a revised University policy—to be phased in over the next two years—requiring that all full-time students carry some form of ACA-compliant health insurance.

The policy change brings Syracuse in line with policies already in place at nearly every other private college and university in the United States.

The decision, based on the recommendations of the University’s Student Health Insurance Advisory Committee, is designed to ensure students have the health coverage vital to their well-being and to meet the requirements of the new health care reforms.

“Our current health insurance plan was unsustainable as it was,” says Senior Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs Rebecca Reed Kantrowitz. “To provide all students with access to an affordable, ACA-compliant plan, we needed to assess different options to ensure no student was left underinsured and at risk of jeopardizing their education or financial stability. It’s the right thing to do.”

Registration requirements for F-1 and J-1 students

F-1 and J-1 students must be registered as full-time students, or establish their full-time status

  • Undergraduate students who are registered for at least 12 credit hours and graduate students who are registered for at least 9 credit hours are considered to be full-time students.   Only one on-line course can count towards the full-time registration requirement. 
  • Undergraduate students who will be graduating in May 2015 and who will be registered for fewer than 12 credit hours in the fall, must submit a Last Semester Memo to the Slutzker Center to establish their full-time status and must be registered for courses that meet in the classroom. 
  • Graduate students who will be registered for fewer than 9 credit hours in the spring, must submit a Certification of Full-Time Status to the Registrar’s Office or a Last Semester Memo to the Slutzker Center to establish their full-time status.   Graduate students registering for fewer than 9 credit hours who still have not fulfilled course requirements must be registered for courses that meet in the classroom.
Note:Failure to meet the above requirements will result in a hold being placed on your student record and you will not be able to register for the Summer and/or Fall 2015 semesters.
