The University of Chicago

Health Insurance Enrollment / Waiver Application Summer 2017

All students are required to carry adequate health insurance. Your insurance must cover routine, non-emergency medical care in the Chicago area, and meet all comparable coverage requirements.

You must satisfy UChicago's health insurance requirement in one of two ways:

Confirm enrollment in the University Student Health Insurance Plan (U-SHIP)


Apply for a waiver by certifying that you have comparable insurance coverage

The deadline for students to add dependents or waive coverage for Summer 2017 is 5:00 PM on Friday, July 14, 2017.

If you do not waive by the enrollment deadline, you will be defaulted into U-SHIP for the summer.

To begin the enrollment or waiver application process, please log in. If you are under 18 years of age, please have your parent/guardian complete the enrollment/ waiver application.
