Student Health Insurance

Body: 
The Affordable Care Act, federally mandated health care legislation, requires that all individuals have health insurance coverage; therefore, in order to better serve Delaware State University students the University has decided to adopt a hard waiver plan. The hard waiver model allows students who already have insurance coverage that meets the federal requirements to opt out of the University’s plan. This model also allows students without health insurance, or insurance coverage that meets the federal requirements, access to an affordable health plan. In order to meet this federally mandated requirement, students can be enrolled into their parents’ plan (if they are under 26 years of age) or purchase their own health insurance. OPTION 1: If already insured, opt out of the University’s student health insurance plan Students who already have insurance coverage that meets the federal requirements – including those under the age of 26 who are enrolled in their parents’ plan – can opt out of the University’s student health insurance plan, in which all full-time students are automatically enrolled. WHAT YOU MUST DO: If you already have health insurance coverage, complete the waiver form online on Delaware State University’s page at www.studentinsurance.com/schools/DE/DESU prior to September 30, 2014 the deadline for the fall semester. Once your insurance waiver is verified by AIG insurance company, the University will update your student account to reflect the waiver and a credit will be issued.   OPTION 2:  If not sufficiently insured, activate your student health insurance coverage Full-time students without health insurance, or enough insurance coverage that meets the federal requirements, will be provided access to a cost-effective health plan through AIG for an annual cost of $1,102 ($551 per semester). WHAT YOU MUST DO: If you did not waive out of the insurance plan, you will need to go online prior to September 30, 2014, the deadline for the spring semester, to Delaware State University’s page at www.studentinsurance.com/schools/DE/DESU and select “Enroll” to activate your coverage and receive your insurance ID card. To use the insurance prior to February, you must go online and activate your coverage.  Coverage under the plan begins August 1, 2014, and ends December 31, 2014. Coverage for the spring semester begins January 1, 2015, and ends July 31, 2015. You are strongly encouraged to learn more about Delaware State University’s student health insurance plan by viewing the full policy brochure online at DSU’s page at www.studentinsurance.com/schools/DE/DESU. The brochure details coverage, benefits, policy exclusions and out-of-pocket costs.

Student Employment

Body: 
The Student Employment Office (SEO) was created to provide a “one stop resource” for Delaware State University students concerning all matters of student employment.  We are dedicated to helping students locate jobs on campus and ensuring that students maximize the value of their employment experiences. We believe that having an on campus job helps students become more involved with DSU community, provides valuable work experience, and helps build transferable skills and habits that will benefit future career options.  The Student Employment Office, an integral part of the Office of Career Services, is based on a philosophy of providing valuable work experience for degree-seeking students through the performance of jobs on or off campus and providing employment venues that assist with financial support to the student’s academic studies. Student employment on or off campus gives students the opportunity for practical experience in the world of work comparable to emerging occupations. Practical work offers knowledge, skills, and abilities attractive to future employers and complements their academic credentials. Financial assistance in the form of on and off campus work should be responsive to the student’s class hours and schedule. However, a student’s financial need should not override relative merit and qualifications when departments make hiring decisions. To enter the start your job search, click here.
