As a reminder, the University of St. Thomas requires all undergraduate degree-seeking students taking 12 or more credits and all graduate and professional students taking 9 or more credits to demonstrate health insurance coverage. If you have the same insurance as fall term, it will only take a minute to complete. Students who are not covered by other policies have the option of purchasing the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan. The coverage is from Jan. 15 through Aug. 14, 2010; the premium is $429 for spring semester. Review the insurance coverage details on the Student Health Service Web site to determine if this plan meets your needs.
