Mandatory Health Insurance

The University System of Georgia requires certain groups of students to have health insurance as a condition of enrollment.  We call this “Mandatory Enrollment.”  If you fall into one of the mandatory categories list below, and you are not covered by an insurance policy (i.e. through parent plans, family plans or employer-sponsored plans) that meets the minimum standards of insurance as set by the Board of Regents, you must enroll in the USG- SHIP plan.  Your registration will be automatic and the charge will be applied to your student bill.

  • All graduate students receiving a Full Tuition Waiver as part of their graduate assistantship award
  • All undergraduate, graduate and ESL international students holding F or J visas.
  • All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs that require proof of health insurance.
  • All graduate students receiving fellowships that fully fund their tuition.
  • International Scholars.

For more information on these plans go to https://www.uhcsr.com/gcsu and select Georgia College & State University.

If you are already covered by a health insurance plan that meets the minimum benefits, you can easily opt out of USG-SHIP by applying for a waiver.  This waiver must be applied for each Fall and Spring Semester.

The waiver period for Spring Semester 2014 is October 30-February 14, 2014.  Select the link above to request a waiver.
