Important Information about Health Insurance for All Students

All students upon entering and again each summer for subsequent years of enrollment at EU must enroll in or waive the Eastern University Group Health Insurance plan provided by UnitedHealthcare. It is up to the student to complete the appropriate online form on http://firststudent.com/schools/EasternUniversity.htm within the time frame. All students MUST waive or enroll each year between July 1 - September 15 (or by January 15th for first time students entering in the spring) or they will automatically be enrolled in the University's Group Health Insurance Plan and be billed for a year of this insurance.  Once billed on the 15th of September or January, the charges CANNOT BE REVERSED and the student is enrolled even if they have other insurance. IF YOU HAVE PRIVATE INSURANCE YOU MUST WAIVE OUT OF THE EU GROUP PLAN BY SEPTEMBER 15. If you need assistance in the waiver process it is up to you to call Student Development to ask for help. Failure to enroll will result in a bill for this annual medical insurance plan.   

For Residents

Consider Purchasing Renters Insurance:  Although thefts or damages are few, Eastern University housing is not 100% exempt from them. While every effort is made to provide a secure, trouble-free environment, the University does not assume responsibility at any time for the private property of its students. Eastern is not liable for the loss of or damage to such property. You are strongly encouraged to look into renter's insurance with any reputable insurance company.
