Westminster requires all students to have Health Insurance. If you have health insurance, you must complete Insurance Opt Out. If you don’t have health insurance, don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything. Westminster will purchase a health insurance plan for students who haven’t completed the Opted Out process by the end of August and the cost will be added to the student’s bill.
