Welcome to the Columbus State University student health insurance plan (SHIP). Here you have the option of enrolling or waiving out of the plan offered by UnitedHealthcare StudentResources.

Open Enrollment will close on February 21, 2014

Students in these categories who are not covered by a policy held by a parent, spouse, company or organization on the approved waiver list or if the policy does not meet the minimum standards must purchase the USG SHIP policy.
  • All graduate students receiving a Full Tuition Waiver as part of their graduate assistantship award.
  • All undergraduate, graduate and ESL international students holding F or J visas.
  • All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs that require proof of health insurance.
  • All graduate students receiving fellowships that fully fund their tuition.
  • International Scholars.

Students who fall into one of these categories and are already covered by an insurance policy (i.e. through parent plans, family plans or employer-sponsored plans) can easily opt out of the plan through a secure on-line process. Once the information has been verified, all charges will be removed from your student account. Students listed in the above categories who fail to submit creditable health insurance information will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the system-wide student health insurance plan.

If you fall into one of the mandatory categories listed above, Columbus State University will submit your enrollment information directly to UnitedHealthcare Student Resources. No action on your part is needed to enroll. However, you are responsible for waiving coverage through the link below by the end of the open enrollment date.


The waiver period for your school has not started or it has already ended. Please contact your school for more information.
