Covering eligible dependents on the Mandatory Plan

Special Information about Summer-only 2018 Enrollment and Waiver Period
The enrollment and waiver period for summer-only 2018 is April 16, 2018 – June 20, 2018.

Enrollment and waiver information for the 2018-2019 academic year (coverage from August 1, 2018 – July 31, 2019) will be announced at a later date.

Who must enroll or waive Summer-only coverage?
The only students that can enroll or waive during the Summer –only enrollment and waiver period are students who are newly-mandated during the summer 2018 semester.  Newly-mandated students are:

  • International students with a J or F visa status enrolling during summer 2018 semester(s) who were not enrolled in classes during spring 2018 semester
  • Graduate students newly awarded a graduate assistantship tuition waiver for summer 2018 semester. 

Students who were enrolled or had an approved waiver during the spring/summer 2017 coverage period do not need to enroll or submit a waiver request again for Summer-only coverage.  Enrollments, including dependent enrollments, and approved waivers for spring/summer 2018 cover the period of January 1 – July 31, 2018. 

Students that did not submit a waiver request during the spring/summer 2018 waiver period and thus were automatically enrolled in the plan for spring/summer 2018 coverage period cannot waive any coverage until the fall 2018 waiver period.  Students automatically enrolled were enrolled in coverage from January 1- July 31, 2018 and the coverage cannot be prorated and ended early.

Dependents of covered students are also eligible for coverage under this plan. Eligible dependents are:

  • The legal spouse of the covered student

  • Any dependent child of the covered student under age 26.

Premiums for dependent coverage are paid directly to United Healthcare Student Resources. The full dependent premium is due at the time of enrollment.


--IMPORTANT-- Dependents are enrolled on a coverage-period basis and coverage cannot be ended early! Dependents must be enrolled each coverage period in order to continue coverage. Coverage periods are as follows:

  • Fall - coverage from August 1 – December 31
  • Spring/summer – coverage from January 1 – July 31
  • Summer only coverage – coverage from May 1 – July 31 (If a dependent was enrolled during the spring/summer coverage period, the dependent does not have to be enrolled again during the summer-only enrollment period. The dependent is already enrolled through July 31.)
