The purpose of this page is to provide guidance to the parents of undergraduate students during their tenure at Stevens.

FERPA Information

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

Health Insurance Information

New Jersey law mandates that all full-time students (12 Undergraduate or 9 Graduate credits) have health insurance.

For insurance purposes, a Full-time student is based upon registration for On-Campus courses or PHD Research and excludes Web courses.
A student may request insurance eligibility if Full-time status includes Web courses by contacting the Student Service Center at 201-216-5555.

Students are automatically enrolled in the insurance plan and a premium for coverage is added to their tuition bill their starting semester and every fall semester.  Students with proof of comparable coverage are eligible to waive the student health insurance.  Students who are enrolled for coverage with University Health Plans must use the Temporary Policy Information located (on page 22) in their brochure for their Undergraduate or Graduate class level until they receive their permanent insurance ID card. (Brochure can be found on the forms page.)
