Beginning in 2014, West Virginia University will require students to have health insurance.
Assistant vice president of student wellness Cathy Yura tells The Dominion Post that about 35 employees will be affected by the change. The transfers will occur on Jan. 1.
WVU spokeswoman Becky Lofstead says the student health insurance requirement will be implemented by the fall of 2014.
Yura says about 85 percent of students have some form of health insurance.
