Welcome to the University of West Georgia’s 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 June 13, 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.


No waivers for Summer 2014 will be processed after June 13, 2014. Please be aware that students must opt out of the plan by applying for a waiver through the on- line process each semester.
