Important for Students Returning from Leave: Due to the complexity of returning from leave of absence, any student returning from leave who is planning to waive SHP is strongly encouraged to contact our office at studentbenefits@cornell.edu as soon as their return date has been formally confirmed.

For any waiver submitted by the deadline that could meet the requirements but needs additional information for approval, the student will receive a message from Gallagher Student Health requesting additional information. After the waiver update deadline as listed above, all waivers are locked for editing. You can submit a termination of coverage request to receive a pro-rated refund.
