Leave of Absence, Graduation, and Withdrawal

Going on leave? Coming back from leave? Graduating and need to extend coverage? We have you covered.

Important! In most cases, coverage in SHP does not automatically end when you go on leave. If you are already enrolled in SHP for the plan year, you must request a termination of coverage if you do not want to maintain coverage in SHP. If you do not request this termination, no refund can be provided. This applies to all students, including those in PhD programs who may lose funding for SHP during leave; you will be responsible for paying SHP premiums. Student Health Benefits cannot legally terminate your coverage unless you submit a termination request through Gallagher Student Health.

2022-2023 Options Based on Leave Date

Extension options after graduation.

SHP enrollment and waivers when you return from leave of absence.

Coverage for students who withdraw from the University ends 30 days after the date of institutional knowledge.

Date of institutional knowledge is the latter of the change in status effective date on record in the registrar data or the date which the change in status effective date is updated in PeopleSoft by the University Registrar. If an effective date is backdated, the date of institutional knowledge is the date the change in status is updated in PeopleSoft by the University Registrar.
