Enroll/Cost

Am I Eligible to Enroll in the Student Health Plan?

Undergraduate Students

You must be enrolled for at least nine (9) credit hours during the fall or spring semesters or three (3) credit hours if you are enrolling for summer only coverage. If you are in your last semester before graduation and you need fewer than nine (9) hours, you may continue to have coverage. (You have this option only once during your attendance at OU.)

Graduate Students

You must be enrolled for five (5) credit hours during the fall or spring semesters, three (3) credit hours if you are enrolling for summer only coverage, or two thesis or dissertation credit hours. If you are in your last semester before taking your thesis or dissertation, and you need fewer than five (5) credit hours, you may continue to have coverage. (You have this option only once during your attendance at OU.)

Disabled Students

If you are not enrolled as a full-time student, but you have a documented disability and have successfully petitioned the university for full-time status, you may be eligible to enroll in the Plan.

International Students (Norman Campus)

Non-immigrant international students (on an “F” visa or “J1” Visa) taking credit hours are automatically enrolled unless a waiver is granted. Center for English as a Second Language (CESL) students are also automatically enrolled unless a waiver is granted.

CESL Students:  Please contact the CESL office for enrollment and/or benefit questions.

Students in a distance learning program are not eligible for OU student health coverage.
