Year 1 Registration Instructions

There are seven steps to completing the registration process for Year 1 students:

  1. Financial Responsibility Agreement – You will be emailed a link to a financial responsibility agreement. You are required to sign this agreement. This agreement is an acknowledgement that you are responsible to pay tuition and fees. If you have a full-tuition scholarship, you must still sign this agreement.
  2. Disability Insurance – All medical students are required to have disability insurance as a condition of enrollment in the medical school. Please visit Medinsure Group to register and pay for disability insurance.
  3. Health Insurance – All medical students are required to have health insurance or an approved waiver on file as a condition of enrollment in the medical school. Please visit Medinsure Group to register and pay for health insurance.
    1. To waive the requirement to purchase health insurance through the school's group health plan (Medinsure Group), the student's current health insurance must provide coverage and a waiver application, which must be submitted by visiting the Medinsure Group to qualify. Your waiver application will be reviewed and you will be notified if a waiver has been granted.
  4. Health Certification Form – Students must make an appointment with a health care provider and have that provider complete the Health Certification Form. The form includes a health assessment, technical standards certification and immunization/immunity testing records.
    1. Health Certification Form: Scan and email the form to Nicole Collier at ncollier@med.wayne.edu.
    2. Please see the health and information policies for more information.
  5. Student Information Form – Create a Dynamic Forms account and complete the online Student Information Form.

Financial Aid Recipients

You are expected to pay tuition, additional fees and health insurance at registration if your financial aid requirements are not complete.

You MUST complete all requirements at least TWO WEEKS before your registration date. The Office of Financial Student Aid will then notify the Office of Records and Registration that your tuition and fees, with the exception of disability and health insurance, can be "deferred" at registration. For a full list of requirements, please see the Office of Financial Student Aid

If you are the recipient of a full-tuition scholarship through the school, know that among other non-tuition charges it DOES NOT cover the omnibus fee, student support fee, fitness center fee, health insurance or other charges. You will be required to pay non-tuition charges from another source.

If you are the recipient of a scholarship through an external provider such as the U.S. military or National Health Services Corps, you must submit documentation to the Office of Financial Student Aid upon initial acceptance to the program. These programs cover tuition fees and the lowest option single-person health insurance rate. Your tuition fees will be deferred at registration and the university will bill your third-party provider.

Title IV Authorization

  • Under federal law, the university must receive your "authorization" to cover fees other than tuition, registration, student service, fitness center and contracted university room and board fees. These other fees are called "authorized allowable charges" and can include, but are not limited to, short-term loans, interest, open registration, orientation, lab and course material fees. To authorize payment of these fees, click here to complete the Title IV Authorization Form.
  • If you do not complete the Title IV Authorization Form, the university must assume that you wish to restrict use of your financial aid funds. Restricted funds cover only tuition, registration, student service, fitness center and contracted university room and board fees.
  • If you restrict use of your financial aid funds, you assume responsibility for paying any account balance not covered by restricted financial aid by the specified due date. Fees not paid by the due date are subject to late fees.

The Office of International Students and Scholars

The Office of International Students and Scholars at Wayne State University exists to support and enhance your educational, cultural and social experiences. The office collaborates with the medical school and the community to create and maintain an inclusive, global campus.
