Tuition Refund Insurance

New York Tech's Tuition Refund Plan offered by A.W.G.

All students registered for classes in the fall, spring, and summer terms are automatically enrolled in the plan.

Health Insurance

For most students at New York Institute of Technology, health insurance is required for students enrolled at the New York campuses. This requirement is consistent with many other schools in the New York metro area and is widely endorsed by New York Tech's academic, student and health services divisions. At New York Tech, we offer a broad coverage, ACA-compliant health insurance plan through Aetna, a large national healthcare insurance provider.

Students in one or more of the following categories are automatically enrolled for health insurance:

  • Full-time undergraduate students
  • Residence hall occupants
  • School of Health Professions students
  • International students holding an F-1 or a J-1 visa

For questions regarding health insurance charges and waiver information refer to the Office of Counseling and Wellness' guidelines.
