Participation in Loyola Marymount University Endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan is required by all students enrolled in seven (7) or more units and all international J1/F1 students enrolled in one (1) or more units. 

The premium for the Plan is automatically charged to the tuition bill, in the fall and spring semester, if enrolled in seven (7) or more units.

If you have comparable coverage and wish to waive the student health coverage under the Plan, you must submit proof of comparable coverage through the online waiver process, each semester, by the posted waiver deadlines. The accident portion is mandatory and may not be waived. 

Students enrolled in fewer than seven (7) units are not automatically enrolled in the Loyola Marymount University Endorsed Student Health Insurance Plan, but have the option of enrolling in the Plan via the link below.
