Students
University of Notre Dame

Welcome to University of Notre Dame student health insurance plan website.

Graduate, Professional and all International Notre Dame students

  • You are required to have health insurance coverage that meets University criteria (view criteria below).
  • Therefore, you are automatically enrolled in, and charged for, the University-sponsored health insurance plan.
  • HOWEVER, if you have health insurance that meets University criteria (view criteria below), you may waive out of the University-sponsored health insurance plan.
    • You must use the enrollment/waiver application process.
    • Complete this process between July 15 - September 15.
    • If you fail to complete this process by the deadline, or if your insurance plan doesn’t meet University criteria (view criteria below), you will remain enrolled in--and charged for--the University-sponsored health insurance plan.

Domestic (US-based) Undergraduate Notre Dame students

  • You are encouraged, but not currently required, to have health insurance.
  • However, Notre Dame is re-evaluating its position on health insurance and is asking all incoming undergraduate students to provide information about their current health insurance coverage, if any.
    • You must use the enrollment/waiver application process.
    • Choose “waive” on Step 2 to enter your information.
    • If you wish to purchase health insurance, please complete the waiver and then contact Connie Morrow, Assistant Director of Office Operations, at cmorrow@nd.edu.
    • Complete this process between May 15 - July 15.
