As an ABSN student, you are required to have health insurance. If you don’t have health insurance, you can enroll in our university plan and pay the premium associated with your coverage selection. For eligibility and information, visit Student Health Insurance. If you have health insurance, you must show proof of coverage and waive out of our university plan by the specified deadline to avoid automatic billing.
ABSN students may qualify for federal, state, or university grants and scholarships or a federal or private loan. Contact our Financial Aid Office for more information.
