YOU MUST ENROLL MANUALLY IN THE STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR 5 CREDITS OR LESS **OR** IF YOU WISH TO ENROLL IN FAMILY HEALTH INSURANCE!
For the Fall 2015 semester, the Health Insurance Enrollment Deadline will be the Add/Drop date: September 21, 2015. All enrollments need to be in by that date. If you have not enrolled yet, you may do so now!.
This needs to be done every semester for family plans, and any time you have less than five credits that semester or are on Continuous Enrollment. Only students with 5+ credits in a semester are automatically signed up for the SHBP.
Remember: If you are not enrolled for at least 5 credits you must enroll in person at UHS before September 21.
