Beginning in Fall 2014, all students at West Virginia University, enrolled in 6 or more credit hours, will be required to carry health insurance coverage. This decision was recommended by WVU Student Health Advisory Committee so that our students would have access to the quality healthcare they need, when they need it, and as a measure to protect them from high, unexpected healthcare costs. West Virginia University’s first priority is students. We want them to be healthy, happy, and productive in and out of the classroom.

As a WVU Online & Extended Campus student you will be exempt from this mandatory coverage. An exemption request will need to be submitted by visiting:

The charge for coverage will automatically be posted to your fall invoice until you complete and submit the exemption form. The exemption is valid for 1 academic year (2014-2015) and will need to be completed each following year you are enrolled. The deadline for submitting the waiver is August 8th, 2014. Please allow up to 7 days for the processing of the exemption.

If you have any questions about this exemption form, please feel free to contact the Office of Student Insurance at 304-293-6815 or email them at .
