UST Mandatory Insurance Requirements
Undergraduate students enrolled in 12 or more credits and graduate, professional or law students enrolled in 9 or more credits are required to demonstrate health insurance coverage every fall semester.Students who meet this requirement must complete the health insurance verification process or they will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the UST sponsored plan (Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan).
To complete the health insurance verification process, students must enter their health insurance information or purchase the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan via Murphy Online at https://banner.stthomas.edu. Students will receive reminders each fall to complete this process.
Murphy Online will open July 15, 2013, to complete the health insurance verification process for the 2013-2014 academic year. For those purchasing the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan during the annual enrollment period, coverage will be effective starting August 15, 2013.
Degree-seeking students taking at least 3 credits but not meeting the mandatory credit requirement for health insurance may voluntarily purchase the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan during the annual enrollment period this fall.
