Insurance Information for Students

As with most colleges, all students enrolled at Stetson University are expected to have adequate health insurance to cover them while attending the university. In an effort to make affordable coverage available to those who may not have any insurance, as well as to those who have limited insurance, a campus student accident and sickness health plan has been developed to provide quality health care to Stetson students at a reasonable cost.

Stetson University will not automatically enroll students in the student insurance plan. Students must submit an insurance enrollment form and payment to the insurance agent in order to be enrolled in the plan.
