Leaving CMU?

Before you embark on your next journey, make sure that you review this page thoroughly to learn more about access to services, your insurance plan and requesting your medical records.

 

Graduating Students

If you are graduating, you can be seen at Health Services for two weeks following your graduation date. If you are in Pittsburgh after that time and need services, we can help you find local providers for your health care needs. 

If you purchased the CMU student health insurance plan, you have that coverage until July 31. This is a national plan and can be used in any state at a facility that accepts Aetna insurance.

Leave of Absence or Withdrawal

If you are taking a leave or planning to withdraw, you can be seen at Health Services up until the date that your leave becomes effective. If you are in Pittsburgh after that time and need services, we can help you find local providers for your health care needs.

If you purchased the CMU student health insurance plan, you will have that coverage until July 31. This is a national plan and can be used at any site that accepts Aetna insurance in any state.

You must have actively attended classes for at least the first 31 days from the start date of classes to remain eligible (not the start date of the policy). If you leave the university before completing the first 31 days of classes, the insurance policy you enrolled in will be canceled, retroactive to the start date of the policy (August 1). If you leave after 31 days, you can choose to keep the policy you purchased through July 31 or cancel the policy and obtain a prorated refund (if significant claims have not been paid on your behalf). Significant claims are determined on a case by case basis.
