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


Students and their dependents may enroll in the Voluntary SHIP Plan during open enrollment periods. Enrollment for the Fall 2016 and Annual 2016/2017 plans is currently Available. Enrollment for Fall, which provides coverage from 8/1/2016-12/31/16 is available through September 15, 2016.

Students who have experienced a Qualifying Life Event that resulted in their loss of insurance may complete a Qualifying Life Event Form to opt in to the student health plan outside of open enrollment. Please DO NOT select the Enroll Online Now link if you have a qualifying life event. You will need to complete the following two forms and forward to for initial review and processing.

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 are an international student please contact William Mirandy email

No waivers for Fall 2016 will be processed after September 15, 2016. Please be aware that students must opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through the on- line process each semester.

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.)
