Students who have a 20-hour per week teaching/research/administrative office assistantship, Woobank Assistantship, or full University fellowship (such as Bellwether Fellowships or Henneke Research Fellowships) and who are uninsured are eligible to receive the University Student Health Insurance that is provided by the University of Tulsa to the individual student.
This is a community benefit; therefore, students who already have health insurance that pays benefits in Oklahoma will not be reimbursed, nor may the student receive the equivalent cost of the insurance to apply to another policy with another company. To acquire the insurance, a student must complete the Graduate Assistant or Fellow Request for University Student Health Insurance form available at the Graduate School.
Please note, all students enrolled at the University of Tulsa are required to have health insurance coverage that provides benefits in the State of Oklahoma. The health insurance coverage provided as part of some graduate awards is meant to help more students meet this requirement.
If you have questions about this benefit in regard to graduate awards, please contact Sarah Harris or 918-631-2291.
