The deadline for students to submit a health insurance waiver for fall 2017 is Aug. 25. All students who are enrolled in seven or more semester hours are automatically billed for health insurance. Students who currently have health insurance, or are on their parent’s health insurance, have the opportunity to submit a waiver to have the fee removed from their bill. Per Our Lady of the Lake University policy, International students are not allowed to waive coverage.
To submit a waiver:
- Visit www.chpstudent.com
- Select “Our Lady of the Lake-Texas campuses”
- Click on the “waiver” tab and complete the appropriate information
Note: It takes up to five business days from notification of the waiver approval for the health insurance fee to be removed from the bill.
Students who are enrolled in less than seven semester hours or who are taking 100 percent online classes do not need to complete a waiver.
For more information, contact Health Services at 210-431-3919. For questions related to the insurance plan, contact OLLU representative Paul Fisher at 210-861-8696.
