Student Health Insurance
Robert Morris University is committed to offering a student health insurance policy that balances the cost of the premium with quality health insurance coverage to meet the needs of our students. In order to achieve an affordable option, RMU has a mandatory hard waiver policy for select groups of students.
The University requires that all traditional undergraduate students, both full-time and part-time, carry health insurance. Additionally, graduate students in the following groups will be required to carry comparable health insurance coverage or buy coverage from RMU's provider:
Cross registered students are not permitted to participate in the RMU health insurance plan.
- Resident Students
- International Students
- Club Sport Participants
- Nursing and Nuclear Medicine Students
- Intercollegiate Athletes
If you have Highmark Insurance coverage, you can print your insurance card from the Highmark website. Directions for downloading your insurance card.
Students should verify that their insurance plan meets the minimum requirements set forth below:

Alternative insurance coverage is subject to verification by Robert Morris University. Students should ensure that their insurance coverage will be accepted within reasonable proximity to the Robert Morris University campus.
- Hospital Coverage

- Emergency Room Services
- Policy Maximum of $100,000

RMU student accounts are charged the insurance cost upon registration. Once comparable coverage has been provided to the University, the health insurance charge will be removed from the account.
