2. Fill out Health Forms Online

3. Underage Students
Are you under 18 years of age?
If so, your parent or guardian must complete a Parental Medical Consent Form. It must be completed in full by your parent or guardian. Information will be kept on file in order to provide health care services to you during your enrollment at FIT.
To fill out the parental medical consent form, log in to the FIT health portal with your FIT username and password and click My Forms.
4. Health Insurance
FIT has a mandatory health insurance policy for full-time students. All full-time domestic and international students with 12 credits or more are automatically enrolled and billed for the student health insurance. Graduate full time students (9 credit hours overall) are also automatically enrolled and billed for this health insurance. See: Student Health Insurance
You must confirm your enrollment to the student health insurance plan to receive your insurance card. If you do not confirm, you will receive your insurance card after September 15 (fall semester) or February 15 (spring semester).
Do you have your own health insurance?
You may be excused from mandatory insurance if you have equal or better ACA-compliant health coverage from another U.S.-based company. In order to waive the mandatory insurance, you must complete and submit an online waiver form at haylor.com/FIT by the waiver deadline.
