All full-time graduate students taking 9 or more credit hours, full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours, DARC students (approved by AARC) and all CONHP are automatically enrolled in this insurance plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished. New students beginning full-time enrollment during the summer who are taking six or more credit hours per summer term are eligible to enroll in this insurance plan. Eligible students who do enroll may also insure their dependents.

To be eligible for a waiver of enrollment in the SHIP, the University requires that students provide evidence of coverage equal to or better than the coverage provided by the University’s SHIP. Please be advised that the waiver request will be reviewed and verified active with the insurance carrier.
