Mandatory Student Health Insurance 

As a full-time undergraduate student, you are automatically enrolled in, and billed for Loyola’s Health Insurance Plan.

You must provide proof of comparable, existing insurance coverage for the 2022 – 2023 academic year in order to waive coverage through Loyola.
