Submit Your Health Recordsarrow.png

Health insurance is required of all full-time undergraduate students. The two options to satisfy this requirement are to enroll in the student health insurance plan or waive the student health plan by documenting equivalent coverage.

All full time undergrads must complete one of the two options above before September 1, or be automatically enrolled in the Dominican University Student Health Plan, and the cost will be added to the student account. Your policy must be as good as or better than the Dominican’s student plan.

All students taking six or more credit hours at Dominican are required to submit a Certificate of Immunity to the Wellness Center prior to their first day of class. This is mandated by Illinois state law.
