Student Insurance Program


Bowling Green State University has implemented a Hard Waiver Health Insurance Program. This program states that all domestic students taking eight or more credits hours on the main campus, and all international students regardless of credit hours are required to have health insurance coverage. This resolution does not apply to domestic students exclusively at BGSU Firelands or distance-learning students.

Under the required hard waiver program, students must have health insurance that meets basic minimum requirements. If students do not wish to purchase the BGSU offered Student Insurance Plan, students must have alternative health insurance coverage and complete a waiver each academic year.  

The deadline for the waiver and enrollment process for the 2014-2015 academic year is August 15,2014

Please select the "How to Waive or Enroll" tab for detailed instructions.

The Mission of the Bowling Green State University Student Insurance Office is to support and empower students to become knowledgeable health care consumers, assist them as they navigate through the health insurance process while achieving their academic goals, and provide a student insurance product at the highest possible benefit levels and lowest possible cost.
