USciences Student Health Insurance Policy

University of the Sciences requires that all students registered half-time (undergraduates with 6 or more credits; graduates with 5 or more credits) maintain active health insurance coverage comparable to the university-sponsored plan while in attendance at the University. In addition, all University of the Sciences International F1 Visa students are required to enroll in the university-sponsored student health insurance plan.


The 2013-2014 enrollment/waiver period has ended. If you need health insurance coverage, please contact the Insurance Coordinator, Ms. Alicia C. Miller at 215-596-8536 or a.miller@usciences.edu.

Students with other health insurance coverage are required to notify the University of their coverage status each year in order to waive out of the university-sponsored student health insurance plan (SHIP). Students without other health insurance must enroll in the USciences SHIP.
