Students in the above noted programs who are not covered by Student Health Insurance for the entire academic year will be charged for the Bloodborne Pathogen Insurance premium on their bill.  This is an annual premium that is not prorated.  Students are constantly evaluated for coverage each academic year beginning Fall term.  In the event a student is no longer covered by Student Health Insurance a charge will be assessed that will cover the student through the end of the academic year (Summer term).  Please note that only Student Health Insurance staff are authorized to waive this charge.
