Cooper Union Health Insurance
It is a requirement that all students (undergraduates who are registered for 6 or more credits and graduate students who are registered for 4.5 or more credits) have health insurance coverage. The Cooper Union provides health insurance for all students through our health insurance company, Wellfleet.
The cost of insurance will be automatically charged to the student's account. The annual cost of health insurance for the 2023 – 2024 academic year is $2,795. Please notify the office of students accounts at email@example.com if you are not planning to be enrolled at The Cooper Union for the full academic year and only require health insurance for a single semester. The cost for the fall 2023 semester (August 15 – December 31, 2023) health insurance coverage is $1,061, and the cost for the spring 2024 semester (January 1 – August 14, 2024) health insurance coverage is $1,734. Costs for the 2024 –2025 academic year will be posted when available.
Students who are covered under their own or their parent's insurance policy may choose to waive the student health insurance plan. Please be advised that if you wish to waive the insurance coverage, the insurance you provide must be currently active and will be subject to coverage eligibility verification through Wellfleet. Please check your cooper.edu email and follow the instructions from Wellfleet for the health insurance waiver process. The waiver must be filed by October 15!
The waiver deadline for our spring exchange students is March 15.
