Montclair State University is committed to ensuring all full-time students have access to adequate health insurance coverage. Full-time students include:
- Undergraduate students enrolled in twelve (12) or more credits
- Graduate students enrolled in nine (9) or more credits
Full-time students must enroll in the Student Health Insurance plan (SHIP) OR be covered by a comprehensive Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant health insurance plan. To ensure compliance, you are automatically billed for the SHIP, but you have the option to waive it by submitting an online waiver by Friday, October 1, 2021.

You Can Waive the Health Insurance!

Waive It or Pay It!
Failure to submit a waiver by the deadline date of Friday, October 1, 2021, even if you have other comprehensive coverage, will result in automatic enrollment in the plan.
You will be responsible for paying the premium even if you have other health insurance coverage if you fail to waive it by the deadline!
