November MPRE Registration Deadline
Tuesday, September 27, 2005 is the regular registration deadline for the November 4, 2005 MPRE. You can pick up a paper application at the Registrar's Office. Paper applications must be received by the MPRE Application Department in Iowa by 5:00pm. Online applications must be received by midnight. You can complete a registration form online at www.ncbex.org/mpre.htm.

Health Insurance Cards
If you enrolled in the student health insurance plan and have not yet received an insurance card, you card should be mailed to you this week. If your card does not arrive by the beginning of next week, please contact The Chickering Group customer service at (800) 841-3140 to request a card.

If you donít have an insurance card yet and need to see a doctor or have a prescription filled, you have a few options. First, depending on what is wrong, you can use the Student Health Center at IIT, where you don't need the insurance information. If you prefer to see your own doctor, you will have to pay out-of-pocket and get reimbursed from Chickering. Students needing to have prescriptions filled will also need to pay out-of-pocket and submit a claim form. (See the Student Health Insurance FAQ for links to claim forms.) Alternatively, some doctors might process your claim without an insurance card if you explain that you have student insurance and are waiting for your card. You will need to provide the doctor with IIT's policy number, 724532, and your ID number, which is your social security number. Temporary insurance cards with this information are available in the Student Health Insurance Plan brochure that was mailed to your homes during the summer. You can also pick up a copy of this brochure at the Registar's Office.
