Extension Options

If you are already enrolled in SHP and going on a university approved leave of absence or graduating, you may be able to extend your coverage. Your eligibility for a SHP extension and the length of the extension will depend on the effective date of your status change.

Important note for SHP Plus (Medicaid) students: If you are enrolled in SHP Plus, you will no longer be eligible if you take a leave of absence or graduate. You may purchase an extension of regular SHP, as described below, but you will be responsible for paying the premium amount. Please email to discuss your options.

If you are going on a leave of absence, see our Leave of Absence page for information on your extension options.
