Graduate Student Subsidy

Graduate students may be eligible for a subsidy from the Graduate School for the cost of their Aetna health insurance.


New Fall 2021 students are automatically enrolled with a plan start of 8/15. Continuing students' are automatically renewed as of 8/15. Students with eligible stipend funding will receive a subsidy that covers the total cost of their premium: $2,680.


Subsidies or credits are applied in early October, once all waive-outs have been processed. Please do not panic if your student account shows that you have a fall insurance balance. The Office of Student Accounts knows the subsidy or credit is forthcoming, and they do not expect students to pay health insurance charges before October.
