CU Health Insurance

All students are required to have health insurance during their time at CU Boulder. Some students may be automatically enrolled in the Student Gold Health Insurance Plan, and additional student fees will be assessed.

Fall and Spring Semesters

During the fall and spring semesters students are automatically enrolled in the CU health insurance plan if they are:

  • a degree-seeking student,
  • enrolled in at least one Continuing Education course, and
  • enrolled in 6 or more credits as an undergraduate or enrolled in 1 or more credits as a graduate student.

Summer Session

Students enrolled in the CU health insurance plan during the spring semester are covered through the summer.

New summer students are not automatically enrolled in the CU health insurance plan but have the opportunity to purchase coverage at the Wardenburg Health Center by July 1. Payment is due at enrollment.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search Buff Portal and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
