  • Assuming continuous annual coverage, the "student only" contribution would be $443.00. The frequency and amount of the deduction is based upon whether you have a Fiscal Year or Academic Year appointment.
  • Graduate student staff must enroll during the open enrollment period at the beginning of the Academic year.
  • New Graduate student staff hired after the enrollment period must enroll/opt out within 30 days of their start date.
  • Students who do not enroll by the deadline will lose their eligibility for the Graduate Student Staff plan. However, since insurance is mandatory for international students, you will have to enroll in the regular International plan and pay the full cost.
  • If you choose to waive the graduate student staff insurance plan, you must opt out online and submit a waiver to the Student Insurance office by the deadline..
