Auburn University’s
Administrative Fee
for Insurance Enrollment

  • Effective 8/15/2013: Everyone insured through Auburn University must pay the administrative fee. This includes scholars and OPT students.
  • All insurance costs are calculated based on the number of days a student/scholar is in the United States.
  • Please note that the Auburn University administrative fee of $34 per year is prorated to cater to individual insurance coverage. For example, if a scholar is only in the United States for six months, the administrative fee will be $17, not $34. If a student is only here for 1 week, the administrative fee will only be 63ยข.
  • To estimate insurance costs including the Auburn University administrative fee, count the number of days you will be in the United States and multiply that number by $5.09. This estimate may be a little higher or lower than actual costs, but will be within $50 of total insurance cost.
