GRADUATE STAFF ENROLLMENT 2021 – 2022 Open Enrollment is now closed.
Graduate staff have 30 days from their hire or newly benefits-eligible date to enroll in graduate staff benefits. Outside of that timeframe, there is an annual Open Enrollment period in July where you may review the graduate staff benefit offerings and enroll for the upcoming plan year (August to the following July)
If you did not enroll during the open enrollment timeframe, refer to the Graduate Staff Insurance Enrollment FAQs and review “What Happens If I Miss the Enrollment Deadline?
