Summer Health Insurance Enrollment
If you are not currently enrolled in the student health
insurance plan and want to begin coverage this summer, please

by May 20, 2005. The coverage period for summer health insurance
is May 26 - August 14, 2005. You do not need to be enrolled
in summer school to qualify for this insurance. You will
pay the premium of $245 directly to the insurance company
and it will not be reflected on your IIT account.

health insurance plan. The cost for an individual student

IMPORTANT: If you want your health insurance
enrollment processed early, please email Melody Jack at

of credit hours, who submit their enrollment request to
