Health Insurance:

  • Syracuse University requires all full-time students to carry some form of ACA-compliant health insurance.  If you need to purchase health insurance (either through the university-sponsored plan or on your own), the cost of the policy may be included in your cost of attendance so that you may utilize federal student loan eligibility to help pay for your health insurance.  To request a budget adjustment, you may submit the Cost of Attendance Adjustment Request for Student Health Insurance. This mandatory fee may be waived if a student has adequate private health insurance coverage. If you have questions about the Syracuse University Health Insurance Policy and Plan, please visit the Student Health Insurance website, send an email to healthinsurance@syr.edu or call 315-443-9019.
