Mercer students must maintain primary insurance coverage. Students, except those enrolled in the Regional Academic Centers or distance learning programs, are automatically enrolled in the University sponsored student health plan. There is a charge for this coverage. To have the charge removed from the Mercer account, a student must show evidence of enrollment in a personal insurance plan. All International students must have active health insurance regardless of hours enrolled or campus attended.
Mercer University requires certain immunizations for all enrolling students. Some programs may have additional immunization requirements. Students in the College of Pharmacy, College of Nursing, and College of Health Professions, and School of Medicine should ask their admissions departments for specific immunization requirements, which may differ from those required by the University.
