Student Health Insurance
Canisius College strongly recommends that all students have health insurance either through a parent/guardian or individual plan. In the event of sickness or injury, uninsured students may put off seeking medical treatment. Knowing this, Canisius College sponsors an accident and sickness plan for all students enrolled for six or more credits. This plan has been arranged by M &T Insurance Agency, through the Allen J. Flood Company. View details about this plan.
The 2013-2014 academic year may be the last year the college offers a sickness and accident plan for students who are US citizens. Students should consider accessing the insurance exchanges from their state to purchase a plan.
