How do I request a waiver from the student insurance?

To request a waiver from the Columbia Plan, domestic students must submit a request online before the deadline. You may be asked to  provide proof of your alternate coverage that meets all of the University’s waiver criteria. International students are unable to waive the Student Insurance.

January 1 - August 14December 15 - February 15
(New Spring term students only)
June 1 - August 14May 1 - June 15

The enrollment/waiver decision made for the Fall Term carries forward to the Spring Term if you remain a registered student. Once you’ve made your selection, you cannot change that selection during that plan year.
