All full-time JD students must be covered by health insurance. You must either enroll in the school-sponsored plan or show proof of other comparable coverage and waive out of the Villanova University sponsored plan. If you are unable to waive out of the school-sponsored plan, you may contact the Office of Financial Aid to request additional loan funding. Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If your request is approved, we will increase your budget to cover the estimated 12-month premium for the Villanova University-sponsored insurance plan. Please click here for more information.

The Bursar’s Office handles all billing and payments. Fall semester bills are typically available for viewing in July and Spring semester bills are usually available in November. Paper bills will not be mailed. You can access your bill through your myNova account in the Student Tab under Bursar Links.

Students will receive an email alert each time a new V-bill is available.  New students should note that V-bills are available only after the registration and billing process is completed.  All tuition and fee charges must be paid no later than the first day of classes or a late fee may be assessed by the Bursar’s Office.
