The policy year runs August 16th through August 15th of the following year. Students purchasing the Fall coverage period will be charged for 6 months of the annual policy (August 16th-February 14th) on their student accounts during Fall Semester, and the remaining 6 months of the Spring coverage period (February 15th through August 15th) is charged to the student account during Spring Semester. This provides students with year-round coverage without having to take classes over the summer. Therefore, the premium rate paid Fall and Spring Semesters is for 6 months of coverage, and not just the active semester dates. Purchasing the Fall and Spring Continuing coverage periods will provide one full year with no lapse in coverage.
