All students who are 1) admitted to a degree program and 2) registered for six or more credits per semester that count toward the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee are required by the University of Minnesota to have health plan coverage. Students should visit www.shb.umn.edu to determine if their insurance meets criteria for a waiver.
Eligible students who do not provide verifiable insurance information at the time of class registration or appropriately waive the Student Health Benefit Plan per established guidelines will be automatically enrolled in and billed for the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan. To learn more about this policy, visit www.shb.umn.edu.
Note: Academic Health Center (AHC) and International students continue to have separate health plan requirements and are not affected by this change.
