Students must meet this requirement their first semester at CU Boulder and at the beginning of each academic year. Those taking six (6) or more undergraduate credit hours or one (1) or more graduate credit hours are required to complete the health insurance requirement process.
All students, regardless of their insurance plan, have full access to the services provided by Health and Wellness Services.
