Beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year, ALL FAMU students will be required to have health insurance. Students must provide proof of health insurance coverage that meets benefit requirements set by the Affordable Care Act for a Gold level plan. Students that do not have health insurance coverage may purchase the University sponsored student health insurance plan (SHIP), which will be effective August 15, 2016 – August 14, 2017.
Students that already have appropriate insurance coverage will need to provide documentation prior to class registration via an online waiver. The waiver portal will become available the first week of August 2016. Students that fail to provide documentation or that do not have appropriate coverage will have a registration hold placed on their account.
