Student Health Insurance Plan

University Health Services has updated the CMU Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) enrollment and waiver process for the 2020-2021 academic year to address the hybrid model of instruction.

  • All full-time, degree-seeking students located in the United States are required to carry adequate medical insurance to support your health and well-being.
  • Part-time students are not subject to the insurance requirement, but the SHIP is available for enrollment.
  • Students must be engaged in coursework for the first 31 days of the semester, whether remote or in person, to be eligible for the SHIP.
  • Students located outside of the U.S. taking classes remotely are not subject to the insurance requirement and are not required to submit a waiver.

If you have any questions regarding CMU SHIP, enrollment or waivers, visit the Student Health Insurance Plan website or contact us.
