For Students Beginning Full-time
Studies Before August 2012

If you are beginning your full-time studies before August 2012 (i.e., May, June, July), you must complete the Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process in two steps to assure continuation of your coverage decision during the academic year.

STEP 1: Complete the Health Insurance Enrollment Form or the Health Insurance Waiver Form Please submit the appropriate form below before your program start date. This step documents your insurance coverage from your program start date through July 31, 2012. Send the form to the UHS Insurance Advisor by fax, e-mail, or mail.

STEP 2: Complete the online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process. This online process, which documents your insurance coverage from August 1, 2012 through July 31, 2013, is required for all full-time students every year. The link to the online Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Process is in the pink Quick Links box on the UHS home page. This step is necessary even if you will be continuing the insurance selection you made in Step 1.

We recommend completing Step 2 by June 30 to assure appropriate billing on your first tuition billing statement. If you do not complete the online process by September 15, you will be enrolled in the University-sponsored insurance for the year. Not completing the online process and waiting to be enrolled is not recommended due to the problems you are likely to experience if you need to use the insurance in the fall.
