New York Film Academy Admissions

The New York Film Academy Health Insurance Plan (NYFASHIP)

All incoming and continuing students are required to have health insurance for the duration of their course of study. Long-term students will be automatically enrolled in the New York Film Academy Student Health Insurance Plan (NYFASHIP) and billed for health insurance coverage. Short-term students are not eligible to enroll in NYFASHIP and must purchase health insurance coverage for the time they will be living in their campus region and participating in their NYFA program.

For all long-term students, costs for student health insurance coverage will be billed to students’ accounts at the start of each term enrollment period. Enrollment periods typically coincide with semester start dates. For New York students attending programs with semesters spanning two enrollment periods, students’ accounts will be billed twice per semester or once per each 16-week enrollment period.

Please refer to the Rate Chart* below for information on costs of NYFASHIP coverage.

Waiver Application Process


The instructions that follow apply to FALL 2022 LONG TERM students and all CURRENTLY ENROLLED CONTINUING LONG-TERM students. Incoming new students enrolling in later long-term programs will be invited to participate in the waiver application process approximately one month prior to their program start dates.



TTHE WAIVER APPLICATION PORTAL WILL BE OPEN TO FALL 2022 STUDENTS AND CURRENTLY ENROLLED CONTINUING STUDENTS ATTENDING LONG TERM PROGRAMS, JULY 18, 2022 THROUGH OCTOBER 10, 2022. WAIVER APPLICATIONS CANNOT BE ACCEPTED OR PROCESSED OUTSIDE OF THIS TIME PERIOD WHEN THE WAIVER PORTAL IS OPEN.

IF YOU HAVE COMPARABLE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE AND IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE ENROLLED IN THE NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN (NYFASHIP), YOU MUST SUBMIT AN ONLINE WAIVER APPLICATION BETWEEN JULY 18, 2022, 2022 AND OCT 10, 2022. IF YOU HAVE COMPARABLE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, AND YOU DO NOT SUBMIT A WAIVER APPLICATION THROUGH THE WAIVER APPLICATION PORTAL DURING THE TIME PERIOD NOTED ABOVE, YOU WILL BE ENROLLED IN NYFASHIP FOR THE DURATION OF THE 2022/2023 ACADEMIC YEAR AND RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF FEES FOR HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, 8/21/2022-8/30/2023.

ALL STUDENTS WHO DO NOT SUBMIT A WAIVER APPLICATION BETWEEN JULY 18, 2022 AND OCT 10, 2022 AND ALL STUDENTS WHOSE SUBMITTED WAIVER APPLICATIONS HAVE BEEN DENIED WILL BE ENROLLED IN NYFASHIP AND RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF FEES FOR HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE, 8/21/2022-8/30/2023.

Upon completion of the waiver application process, students will receive emails from Aetna confirming that their applications and information have been received for review. Aetna will provide follow-up emails notifying students if their waiver applications have been approved or declined. If declined, insurance charges will remain on students’ accounts. If approved, charges for NYFASHIP coverage will be removed (or refunded) from students’ accounts. Students are encouraged to carefully and thoroughly read all email communications received from Aetna.

Students who elect to enroll in NYFASHIP and students whose waiver applications have been declined will be billed for term enrollment costs, per the rate chart noted above, prior to Fall, Spring and Summer terms and for as long as they remain enrolled in their academic programs for the 2022/2023 academic year. For these students, once the waiver portal is closed and charges for insurance coverage are applied, the charges cannot be reversed.

If you are a new FALL 2022 student and if you are a continuing student who started a long-term program in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 (Spring and Summer), you will again need to submit a waiver application each and every subsequent FALL for as long as you remain enrolled in your long-term program, as waiver permissions expire at the end of each academic year. Your waiver application must be submitted and approved each FALL to dis-enroll from NYFASHIP for any and all subsequent academic years.
