Voluntary plan life changes

(Allows enrollment or adding dependents outside the enrollment period)

Certain qualifying life-change events allow a voluntary plan-covered student to enroll him/herself outside of an enrollment period. Students can also add dependent coverage after the close of the enrollment period for certain qualifying events.

Coverage under the voluntary student health insurance plan can be added for the following qualifying events:

Students must elect enrollment within 30 days of the qualifying life event. Coverage can be added for the remainder of the current coverage period elected. Premiums are not prorated.

To enroll, students must complete and provide the following within 30 days of the qualifying event:
