Health/Dental Insurance Enrollment/Change Form


Student Dependent Certification Form (for dental coverage for children ages 19-26) Please use this form only if you need to re-enroll your student.  Everyone that is currently enrolled will receive a new form in January.

IMPORTANT: If enrolling any dependents on your Health/Dental plan, documents proving dependent eligibility MUST be submitted with your application.  Addition of spouses require copy of marriage certificate. Addition of children require copy of the birth certificate(s).  Addition of children between the ages of 19-26 to the dental plan also require a completed student dependent certification form.  Applications sent without dependent documentation will not be processed.
