Student health insurance is MANDATORY for full-time undergraduate (12 or more credits) and graduate (9 or more credits) students, including those enrolled in English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Online students and students attending classes through Extended Studies or Florida Tech Online do not meet the eligibility requirements.

Domestic students may apply to waive university-sponsored insurance by providing proof of coverage through PantherPass by the end of the second Friday of classes.

It is MANDATORY for all international students to be covered by the university's health insurance plan.

Exceptions may be granted only if you have an insurance plan that meets very strict requirements in order for you to qualify for the waiver. You may request a waiver of the insurance fee by completing a form and providing proof of appropriate insurance to the Business and Retail Operations Office. Waiver forms are available from the Business and Retail Operations Office. Florida Tech will not accept coverage by an insurance company outside the United States. Rates are subject to change when the policy is renewed.
