 *Student Medical Insurance Plan is required for all Fuqua MMS:DKU students.  It can be waived if you have other health insurance coverage. Please contact our Financial Aid Office if your Duke-sponsored Student Medical Insurance Plan cost is different from this amount. We will adjust your COA accordingly. The actual cost of the Student Medical Insurance Plan is established in late spring each year.  The University Bursar's Office provides additional information regarding student medical insurance with fall tuition statements.
