Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) - Graduate Students
All graduate students are assessed a quarterly fee for mandatory Graduate Student Health Insurance (SHIP). The fee is paid by the university for teaching and research assistants who have appointments of 25% time (10 hours per week) or more. All other graduate students are responsible for the quarterly premium unless they waive out of the plan. The completed waiver form must be submitted to the Student Health Insurance Advisor prior to the registration fee deadline. Forms are sent to students along with insurance information and are also available at Student Health and at their Web site at www.sa.ucsb.edu/studenthealth. The university student health insurance policy provides year-round and worldwide coverage. Contact the Student Health office at (805) 893-2592 for details regarding coverage.
