Health Insurance

The University of South Carolina does not require law students to have health insurance in order to enroll in law school.

Although it is not required, it is recommended that all law students have health insurance. The University's group health insurance plan is available to law students and their dependents.

The University's plan is sponsored by AIG. If you are interested in purchasing health insurance or would like more information, please visit AIG's website at: http://www.studentinsurance.com/Schools/SC/USC/default.asp.

There are two distinct ways that you can purchase health insurance through the university. You can read about them in greater detail below. Regardless of which way you pay for your insurance, if you want to maintain it you will need to renew it each semester.

Please contact the Student Health Services office if you have any questions regarding health insurance. Their contact information is located here: http://www.sa.sc.edu/shs/. Pay AIG directly:

  1. Go to: http://www.studentinsurance.com/Schools/SC/USC/default.asp
