Rice requires all students to carry health insurance. Students may purchase insurance through the university's insurance plan or from an outside insurer of their choice, if they are not covered by their parents' plan.
Policy descriptions and applications for Rice's plan are sent, along with the tuition statement, to incoming and returning students each summer and also are available from the Cashier's Office and Student Health.
Students who choose an outside carrier must fill out a waiver showing proof of insurance. Students must submit information about their health insurance plan each summer to avoid additional insurance charges.
