Health Insurance

If enrolled in or planning to be enrolled in at least 7 units (Undergraduate), VU requires students to participate in the Student Health Insurance Plan unless proof of comparable coverage is indicated on the Housing Contract. Students who do not request to have their insurance waived or enter incomplete information by September 12th will automatically be enrolled in the VU Student Health Insurance Plan for the entire semester and charged accordingly ($837.00). For inquiries about benefits, contact United Healthcare toll-free at (800) 767-0700 or online at www.UHCSR.com/vanguard.

All Undergraduate students waiving out of VU’s Student Health Insurance Plan must complete the online waiver form at studentcenter.UHCSR.com/vanguard each semester by the established deadline. Contact the Residence Life Office for information regarding health insurance waiver deadlines.
