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 many 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.
Extensions for Dental and Vision coverage are not offered for students graduating, going on leave, or withdrawing from the university. However, if already purchased, Dental and Vision coverage will continue through June 30th, unless cancelled, regardless of student status. There are no refunds for cancellation of Dental or Vision coverage.
Coverage for students who withdraw from the University ends 30 days after the date of institutional knowledge.
