Insurance

Health Insurance

EMU offers health insurance plans through RCM&D. Health insurance is an EMU requirement for full-time undergraduate, full-time CJP, full-time seminary, full-time MA in counseling, and all international students. The plan options are only available to those student groups.

Personal Property Insurance

EMU does not maintain insurance on student-owned property. Students’ property is sometimes covered under their family homeowner’s policy. Tenant insurance may also be obtained from a local agency if desired.


Liability

Students are expected to respect the rights and property of others and to use campus facilities in a responsible manner. Costs of damage to university property are charged to the account of the student responsible for the damage. Students assume responsibility for damaged property and should report it promptly to the residence director and/or Facilities Management Office.

EMU is not liable for the loss of money or valuables or the loss of or damage to any person’s private property on the campus due to fire, water, or theft. This includes the property of resident and non-resident students and their guests. Students should insure their personal property through their own policy or their parents’ homeowners’ policy.


Refund and Withdrawal Policy

Policies differ for graduate and undergraduate students related to refunds and withdrawals.
