The USF health insurance policy is required for all graduate students unless a student is covered by equivalent insurance coverage. USF health insurance is charged for students enrolled in fall (August 1 - December 31) and spring (January 1 - Jul 31) semesters. It is not charged or required for students who start their program in the summer until the fall enrollment period begins August 1.

Yellow Ribbon
The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows degree-granting institutions of higher learning in the U.S. to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses for eligible veterans. Details and eligibility guidelines for Post-9/11 benefits, including the Yellow Ribbon Program, can be found at under Education Benefits. In short, a veteran must be receiving 100% Post-911 (Chapter 33) benefits in order to be eligible for Yellow Ribbon benefits.
