Canisius requires all full-time undergraduate students to have health insurance.  All International Students (including Canadian students) will be automatically enrolled in the plan.  Domestic students can either enroll in the Canisius College Student Health Insurance Plan or retain comparable coverage via their current health insurance plan or family plan.

If a student will use their own health insurance plan or be covered by a parent’s plan, there is a requirement to demonstrate proof of comparable health insurance coverage and waive out of the Canisius College Health Insurance Plan.  Visit our student health insurance page for more information and complete the form needed to demonstrate proof of health insurance.
