The link to the Online Insurance Process is in the pink Quick Links box on the UHS home page. All full-time students must complete the Online Insurance Process during the appropriate open enrollment period. The Fall Open Enrollment period is for students who are continuing their studies and for students who are beginning their studies in the fall. The Winter Open Enrollment period is for students who are beginning their studies in January. Students who begin their full-time studies in May need to complete the insurance process in two steps. See "If you are beginning studies in May" below for details.
