Am I required to participate in the University’s health insurance?

All full-time students are required to obtain adequate health insurance. The annual premium for the health insurance plan offered through the Student Health Service is added to each student’s fees. Domestic students with adequate alternative coverage may opt out of the University’s health insurance and request cancellation via CaneLink. International students are required to enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance program. miami.edu/newstudenthealth

On CaneLink, what is a proxy?

A proxy user is a person who has been given access to a student’s record in CaneLink. This is a popular option for students who wish to grant access to their parent(s) or guardian(s).

What is a Cane Card?

Your Cane Card is your official on-campus identification card at the University of Miami. All University students are required to carry their Cane Card for identification purposes while on campus. With it, you can gain access to buildings (including residence halls, the library, computer labs, and the Wellness Center) and athletic events, check out books from the library, purchase discounted Metrorail tickets, and pay for meals.
