Waivers

The Fall online waiver period is 5/16/2019 - 9/15/2019.


Domestic Undergraduate Waiver Eligibility

All domestic undergraduate students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours are required to purchase the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished.

Waive Coverage (Opt Out of Coverage)

All domestic students are required to enroll or waive every Fall semester, or if you are a new incoming Spring student, enroll or waive in the Spring. Enrolling/waiving coverage in the previous school year does not exempt you from enrolling/waiving coverage in the next. For those students who do not submit an approved waiver form before the deadline, you will be automatically charged and officially enrolled in the SHIP. Once enrolled, there are no refunds or cancellations. (Please note, automatic enrollment will occur AFTER the waiver deadline.) You will need your UMD student ID and an electronic copy of your insurance ID card to submit your waiver request.

Alternate Health Insurance Requirements:

          ·        Active medical coverage

International Undergraduate Waiver Eligibility

International Undergraduate Students entering UMD beginning Fall 2017 with an F or J Visa are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). These F and J Visa International students cannot waive out of coverage. All other international undergraduate students may submit a waiver to opt out of the Student Health Insurance Plan if you have comparable coverage to the SHIP.

Waive Coverage (Opt Out of Coverage)

Non F and J Visa International Students have the option of completing a waiver request. Students who do not submit an approved waiver form before the deadline will be automatically charged and officially enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan. Once enrolled, there are no refunds or cancellations. (Please note, automatic enrollment will occur AFTER the waiver deadline.) You will need your UMD student ID and an electronic copy of your insurance ID card.
