Insurance Requirements

Health insurance is required for students. Students must enroll in the University of Chicago Student Health Insurance Plan (U-SHIP) or waive enrollment by providing evidence of coverage in a health insurance plan comparable to U-SHIP.

Students must sign up for the plan by Friday of second week of Autumn quarter. Students who do not choose or waive the plan will automatically be enrolled in the insurance plan and billed by the Bursar.

Students must complete the selection or waiver process each year.

Students who are enrolled in a U-SHIP plan are billed for insurance coverage three consecutive quarters. These premiums pay for four quarters of coverage.
