Student Health Insurance

Southern Connecticut State University requires that all individuals enrolled full time must maintain health insurance providing coverage for in-patient and out-patient, mental health, as well as catastrophic illness and injury. Students may satisfy the insurance requirements through private or employer sponsored plans that meet certain minimum criteria or through enrollment in a group insurance plan and opt to waive coverage provided by Aetna Student Health (see below).  If you have any questions concerning the health insurance plan, please contact Aetna Student Health toll-free at 877-375-4244 or visit their website Aetna Student Health.

Late waiver applications will be accepted after the deadline, but no later than the end of the term, and a $65.00 late waiver application fee will become due and payable at the time of application.  To obtain a late waiver application please contact the Bursar's Office at
