enrolled in this Insurance Plan at registration. Students
must actively attend classes for at least the first 31
days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home

do not fulfill the Eligibility requirements that the student
actively attend classes. The Company maintains its right
to investigate student status and attendance records to
verify that the policy Eligibility requirements have been
met. If the Company discovers that the Eligibility requirements
have not been met, its only obligation is to refund premium.
