  5. Health Requirements — Students are expected to complete all health requirements electronically on the student health portal (https://centenary.studenthealthportal.com) at least 2 weeks prior to their scheduled advising appointment.
    Note: All students are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Plan and are assessed a fee for the policy on their term bill. Domestic students covered under an existing health insurance plan may opt to decline the University’s insurance coverage and waive this fee by completing the Insurance Waiver form on the Student Health Portal by the designated deadline. Insurance Waiver forms must be received by the term due date. Missed deadlines will result in mandatory participation in the University Student Health Insurance Plan and may be subject to late payment fees. International students taking at least one credit are required to purchase Centenary University’s Health Insurance. Students are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Plan at registration and the premium is added to the student’s tuition fees and do not have the option to waive coverage.
