Health Insurance & Student Health Records
Student Health Records
Students are required to submit a Student Health Record (online) and fill out the Immunization Record verifying health information and a record of required immunizations before enrolling in their first academic term. New students must provide health care provider-documented immunization status for measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and a current vaccination for bacterial meningitis.
Augustana recommends that all full-time students have health insurance or other medical plan coverage that complies with the Affordable Care Act. Students may visit the Sanford Health Campus Clinic located in Solberg Hall and schedule an appointment with the college nurse at no cost. Students will need to supply their insurance card for all services provided by the Certified Nurse Practitioner, all laboratory testing, and immunizations. Students can visit their portal for more information.
Augustana University requires all international students to maintain medical insurance that provides coverage in the United States and meets certain minimum benefit requirements. Augustana will automatically enroll all international students in Augustana's International Student Accident and Sickness Plan. The insurance premium will be added to the student's bill.
If a student wishes to have the plan waived, proof of coverage must be provided that specifies that the alternate policy provides benefits at least equal to those required by Augustana University.
Waiver Instructions: Ask your insurance company representative to complete the waiver form and return it to Augustana University. A waiver must be completed every academic year, even if the student was enrolled and waived in the prior academic year. (See below to download the insurance plan and waiver form.)
