Information by Student Type

The student health insurance plan offered by Santa Clara University is provided by Aetna. All enrolled SCU students taking two or more classes are eligible to enroll into the Aetna PPO plan. 

Under the Affordable Care Act, individuals must now carry health insurance meeting the minimum essential coverage requirements as defined by the federal government. To ensure that students meet the individual mandate, beginning Fall 2014, all new and continuing students (undergraduate, graduate and law) taking two or more classes are required to provide proof of medical health insurance through a mandatory annual on-line process termed “Hard-Waiver Mandatory”.

As a condition of enrollment, SCU requires students to have a health insurance plan, both to protect against unexpected high medical cost and to provide access to quality care.
