Student Health Insurance

SFAI provides a student health insurance plan offered through United Healthcare Student Resources.

SFAI requires all degree-seeking students who are enrolled in six or more units to be covered by a health insurance plan that is fully-compliant with the Affordable Care Act and is comparable to or exceeds the Institute-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.

If you have other insurance and do not wish to participate in the plan offered through the school, you must complete an online waiver form by the deadline. Failure to do so will result in automatic enrollment in the plan and you will be responsible for paying the insurance premium as part of your tuition bill.
