Clarke University students are required to have health insurance. Some students may be covered under the health insurance plans of their parents or spouse. It is essential to check with the health insurance company to determine eligibility. A student living away from home needs to be sure that they can be covered by out-of-network providers in Dubuque. Students must have health insurance coverage before beginning classes and/or practices, in the case of a student athlete.
Students who are not covered under a parent or spouse for health insurance should purchase a health insurance plan for themselves. Currently, Clarke University does not endorse a specific student insurance plan. There are many resources that offer student and/or individual health insurance plans. Below please find information to help you in your search.
