Waiving student health insurance and legal fees
Student health insurance
Students enrolled in six or more credit hours are automatically enrolled in and billed for the university's comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan. However, if students have insurance through another provider, students can waive Student Health Insurance through the Student Center until August 16.
Student Legal Services (SLS)
Students at the Columbus campus pay an annual $40 SLS fee to have access to a team of legal professionals who can provide advice and representation regarding legal issues affecting students, including a lease review when looking for off-campus housing.
Students may opt out of the fee on the Finances page of the Student Center via buckeyelink.osu.edu by August 16. However, students who opt out cannot re-enroll in the plan later when a legal issue or question arises.
