The UIS Student Insurance Plan is an affordable, high-quality insurance program, designed to meet the needs of our students, with optional coverage available for dependents. The new insurance carrier for 2023-2024 is UnitedHealthcare Student Resources.

All Students should visit Academic Health Plans to review the policy. The AHP website can be used to find information about benefits, providers, prescriptions, and more!

The online waiver portal for Fall 2023 is open now. You can enroll or submit a waiver request through the portal. Enrollment will open on August 1st.

If you receive an email from stating that your account was assessed the Student Insurance Fee, and did not opt out prior to the deadline, you are enrolled in Student Insurance, and the fee will not be removed.

Note, unless informed otherwise, students who submitted an approved waiver in Fall will have a waiver in place that carries over through Spring and Summer, ending on August 15.

Fully online students are not eligible for Student Insurance and have not been charged the fee. Please check the course designation to determine if your class is online or in-person. If your course is designated as in-person even though you are allowed to participate remotely, you will be assessed the student insurance fee.

Shorelight International students are not eligible for UIS Student Insurance and should email for information about their insurance plan.
