Summer Students

Domestic students

Health insurance requirements:

Summer students are not automatically enrolled in Cornell's Student Health Plan (SHP), as academic-year students are.

Please carefully review your health insurance to make sure it meets the university's requirements and provides you with the coverage you need. If it does not, you may be eligible to enroll in SHP for the summer (see summer enrollment information here). 

International students

Health insurance requirements:

Enrollment in Cornell's Student Health Plan (SHP) is mandatory for international students (with few exceptions).

If you are a visiting international student – or a current international student not already covered by SHP from the previous academic year (plan coverage ends July 31) – you will be automatically enrolled in SHP for each month that your program spans (see summer enrollment information here).
