Student Health Care

Important Change to Insurance Offerings for Fall 2013

Beginning fall semester 2013, Notre Dame College will no longer offer student health care insurance; students can carry their own insurance as they choose. With the Affordable Care Act taking effect on January 1, 2014, there are many other options in the market that were not available before.

About 20 percent of undergraduate students at Notre Dame took part in the college-offered plan in the 2012-13 academic year. The Affordable Care Act allows a student to remain on his/her parents’ plan until age 26, eliminating the need for a college-sponsored plan for an even greater number of students.

Please note that proof of health insurance remains a requirement for all students who participate in athletics and club sports.
