All students enrolled in full-time programs (except MBA/MPH), and all F-1 visa status students are required to maintain adequate health insurance coverage to provide protection against unexpected accidents and illnesses. Full-time program and F-1 students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Benefits Plan (SHBP).
Students are billed each fall and spring for the premium on their SIS Student Account. Coverage for new students begins on the first day of orientation and ends the following summer. Coverage for returning students begins on August 15, 2019 and ends on August 14, 2020. No refunds are issued once enrolled in the Student Health Benefits Plan.
Students can access their SHBP by logging into SIS Self-Service. Select the Health Insurance option under the Personal Info tab.
