Duquesne University requires all full time students to have health insurance. This requirement recognizes the increasing importance of health insurance to every individual. Most students have coverage under existing family coverage and will not be affected by this requirement other than to demonstrate they have coverage. Those who do not otherwise have coverage will be required to purchase a policy offered by the University at the beginning of the academic year. This requirement, or Hard Waiver, will allow the University to offer as comprehensive and cost effective a plan as possible to all full time students. Those students who demonstrate that they have coverage from any other source will not be required to purchase the University-sponsored plan.
