The University of San Francisco requires graduate students registered for 6 credit hours or more to carry health insurance.
- Automatic enrollment:
To protect your health and well-being all domestic graduate students registered for 6 credit hours or more, all international graduate students registered for 1 credit hour or more, and all graduate students who reside in USF operated housing will be automatically charged and enrolled in the USF-sponsored health insurance provided through Aetna.
Exception: Graduate students enrolled in online degree programs who do not reside in USF operated housing will NOT be automatically charged and enrolled in the USF-sponsored health insurance.
- Waive USF plan:
Students who have a health insurance plan with coverage comparable to the USF-sponsored plan may choose to waive the student insurance each academic year. Students can visit www.usfca.edu/hps to view waiver instructions and access the health insurance waiver application.
- Voluntary Enrollment:
Domestic graduate students registered for under 6 credit hours and graduate students enrolled in an online degree program are eligible to voluntarily purchase the plan online by visiting www.usfca.edu/hps.
Deadline: The deadline to waive the student insurance or voluntarily enroll in the plan for the fall semester is September 1. The deadline for the spring semester is February 1.
