Important Notes: Incoming exchange students must pay their own Recreation (AU Sports Center) fee and Transportation fee (Metro UPass). The Metro UPass gives students unlimited access to public transportation for the semester. The Health Insurance fee is automatically charged to any student enrolled at AU. Students may only have this charge removed if they meet all the requirements and submit proof of having insurance that meets or exceeds the requirements for health coverage at AU. The spring semester rate is $1340.
Important Notes about Health Insurance
- All full-time students, residential students, and students on F1 and J1 visas at AU must have insurance that provides comprehensive coverage in Washington, DC. If you're in a required category, you will be enrolled automatically in AU's student health insurance plan. This premium is charged to your student account. Spring rate is $1340.
- If you have another insurance plan that provides comprehensive coverage in Washington DC, you may request a waiver and, if approved, the charge (e.g. the health insurance premium) will be removed from your student account.
- After you submit your waiver request, it will be reviewed and a decision made within 5 business days. Please be aware that approval is not automatic. You will receive an email when your waiver decision has been made.
