Mandatory Health Insurance Instructions

In accordance with University of Maryland policy, undergraduate students registered for 6 or more credit hours must show proof of health insurance coverage.  Students complete an on line waiver card each academic year to fulfill this requirement.  If you do not submit a waiver by July 15, 2015, you will be enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). 

Instructions for completing the waiver are included below.

The University Health Center Business Office is available to assist you and your parents with your waiver submission or other health insurance questions. Please notify us by email (uhc-insurance@umd.edu) if you are no longer attending UMD or you feel you received this email in error.
