All students entering Oakwood University must have medical insurance coverage.
Insurance for students without medical coverage may be acquired through the school. The cost for the year is divided into two premiums, August and January. Students are enrolled in the insurance plan during Fall registration. The fee is part of the student’s bill each semester. If a student wishes to use his/her own personal medical coverage, this must be indicated on the insurance waiver form during the Fall registration period. If there are any changes in insurance coverage, students should indicate such change at the beginning of the Spring semester, otherwise their insurance coverage indicated for the Fall will remain the same in the Spring semester. A card or a copy of membership is to be carried by each student in case of an emergency.
All international students are required to accept the insurance offered by the school. For further information contact The Department of Health and Counseling Services at (256) 726-7840.
