Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

Questions about this policy may be directed to Health Services.

  • All students are billed by the business office for the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), which meets federal requirements for health insurers and has preferred payor status with Health Services.
  • U.S. citizens who have insurance that meets the Affordable Care Act (ACA) minimum required insurance plan may waive SHIP and have the charge removed. The website for waivers will open on 7/14/16 and will close on 9/23/16.
  • International students with an F-1 or J-1 visa are required to take the plan and cannot waive.
  • By July 21 deadline, all students must submit proof in the HaverHealth Portal of insurance card before they will be permitted to pick up their room key, have One Card access, or go through Non-Academic Registration. Failure to submit insurance card in portal results in fee of $50.00.
