Note: For best results, please use your desktop or laptop computer. Student Center is not supported for mobile devices.

Welcome to the Georgia Perimeter College student health insurance plan (SHIP). Here you have the option of enrolling or waiving out of the plan offered by UnitedHealthcare Student Resources.

Open Enrollment will close on June 11, 2014

Who must enroll in the USG SHIP plan offered by UnitedHealthcare Student Resources?

All international students at Georgia Perimeter College holding F visas 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.

Can I opt out (waive) the USG SHIP plan offered by UnitedHealthcare Student Resources?

Students holding F visas who 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.

Please note: Insurance fees for the mandatory plan are assessed on a semester basis at the beginning of fall and spring semesters. The Insurance premium assessed at the beginning of the spring semester is higher, because it includes both spring and summer insurance premiums. Health insurance premiums are automatically billed along with tuition and fees. Health insurance premiums are non-refundable. F-1 students enrolling for the first time in summer will be charged a prorated insurance premium the first summer term.


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



What’s Next?  

Once you have submitted your waiver application it will be reviewed. The review process could take up to 10 business days. During the review process you could be asked to submit to your Student Health Insurance Representative proof of your insurance. This could be, but is not limited to, insurance identification card, certificate of insurance, a letter from your insurance company, or your entire insurance policy that outlines your coverage. (All documentation must be in English.) You will be notified at the email address you provided in your waiver application of your approved or denied waiver.

If denied you may appeal this decision by contacting your institution's Student Health Insurance Representative. They will also require you to submit documentation regarding your personal insurance policy. Again, this documentation could be, but is not limited to, your insurance card, a certificate of insurance, a letter from your insurance company, or your entire insurance policy that outlines your coverage. (All documentation must be in English.)
