Multnomah University

Student Health Insurance

The University has a counseling center to provide support resources for student needs related to mental health. We also realize that many students will have concerns arise that require services beyond those which we can provide on campus.

That's why we require all traditional undergraduate college students who are enrolled with six or more credits and all international students to purchase health insurance through the school or to provide proof of equivalent coverage through a personal health insurance policy.

As an institution, we have a plan through Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon for the 2014-2015 year. All traditional undergraduate students who are taking six or more credits and all international students will be automatically enrolled in the Multnomah University Student Health Insurance Plan at registration, and the premium for coverage will be included with their tuition bill.

If a student has existing coverage under their parents, a spouse or an independent plan, and does not need the coverage through the school, they will be required to go through a hard-waiver appeal process to ensure comparable coverage. This process can only be completed online after class registration.
