There are three different categories in which MSU Denver students can Opt-In to the Student Health Insurance Plan by the posted opt-in deadline.
For all Students who meet the requirements to Opt-In to SHIP listed below, they can voluntarily Opt-In by the posted opt-in deadline and submitting all required forms to the MSU Denver Student Insurance office.
Graduate Students taking 6-8 credits in Fall, Spring or Summer Semester can opt-in to SHIP by completing and submitting the Graduate Student Enrollment Form to the MSU Denver Student Insurance office by the posted opt-in deadline to enroll on SHIP.
If an undergraduate student has less than 9 credit hours in the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters to graduate, they can enroll in the insurance plan for their last semester by completing the Graduating Student Enrollment Form and submitting it to the MSU Denver Student Insurance office.
In addition, written documentation by the student’s academic advisor stating that the student has less than 9 hours to graduate and the student will graduate at the end of the enrolled semester is also required.
The enrollment form, academic advisor letter and CAPP report must be submitted directly to the MSU Denver Student Insurance office by the posted opt-in deadline to enroll on SHIP.
If you are enrolled in Spring Semester SHIP, the plan includes Summer Semester coverage.
Optional Summer Semester health insurance coverage is available for students who are new to the plan and register for 9 or more Summer credits by the posted deadline. There is no mandatory requirement for summer only students to be enrolled onto SHIP for the Summer Semester since they were not enrolled in the Spring. To enroll in the optional summer health insurance coverage, complete the Summer Enrollment Form.
Your tuition account cannot be billed for the Summer health insurance premium. Instead the Summer Semester Enrollment Form available during Spring Semester must be completed and the premium paid by check or credit card, and submitted to the MSU Denver Student Insurance office by the posted opt-in deadline to enroll on SHIP.
