Student Medical Insurance


WHAT-Automatic enrollment and billing for a comprehensive health insurance program every Fall and Spring semester. Spring semester coverage includes the summer months (June, July, and August). Plus, those students who are part time (6 hours or more-undergrad, 4.5 hours or more-grad) are also charged for a part-time benefit package.

WHO - University of Wyoming Students-All Full Time Undergraduates and Graduate Students, Part time students taking at least 6 hours (undergrad) or 4.5 hours (graduate), interns and outreach students.

WHY - The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees elected to offer a program which had the least impact on the students, yet maintained a comprehensive program at a reasonable cost.

WHEN - Each Fall and Spring semester, all eligible students must make an insurance selection "yes" or "no" when they register for classes using WyoWeb.



International students may waive the UW Student Medical Insurance if their circumstances meet certain requirements associated with University Regulation 8-248 and the corresponding policy. Both are found here:
